Nostalgic Photos of Bygone Times, NYC Releases Digitized Historic Images

The NYC Municipal Archives Gallery has granted free online access to over 870,000 images digitized from their collections starting today.  The images include photographs, maps, videos and audio recordings.  Access the online gallery here. Please note that you may not be able to gain access today: "Due to overwhelming demand, the New York City Municipal Archives Online Gallery is unavailable at present.  Maintenance activities are underway to address this issue."

Can't wait to see some of these amazing historic images?  You're in luck!  The Atlantic has compiled 53 spectacular photos so be sure to check them out here.  You'll be 'wowed' by photos from the 19th and 20th centuries.  See light pour into NYC's Grand Central Station, feel like you're floating atop the Brooklyn Bridge as bridge repair personnel paint the infamous criss-crossed cables, take a ride on a trolley car circa 1924, and look back at how the world famous NYC skyline appeared decades ago.
