A history of New York City in 870,000 photographs (external link)
Excerpt:

870,000 images of New York City and its municipal operations are being made available to the public on the Internet for the first time, The Associated Press reports .

The photos, some of which date back to the mid-1800s, come from the city's Municipal Archives collection, and they feature all manner of city oversight - from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.

It also features the results of an ambitious plan to photograph every building in the city in the mid-1980s. An earlier set of pictures of every city building taken between 1939 to 1941 has yet to be digitized.

Taken mostly by anonymous municipal workers, some of the images have appeared in publications but most were accessible only by visiting the archive offices in lower

Manhattan over the past few years. Read the full story. (external link)
