General Information on the archive

 The photographs of building in New York City are part of the virtual reality city program. Most of the property photographs listed here were shot between March and July 2001. Each link below contains anywhere from 20 to 700 thumbnail photographs. Some images are shown rotated at 90 degrees in order to save space on the thumbnail page. The full size of each property photograph is about 1 megapixel (which is not presently on-line, but is sent to you after purchase either as an email file or print or on a cd-rom). For pricing information and terms for magazines and newspapers, please read our terms of use page. If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us by email or telephone since we have far more images of each of these properties and other properties than what is available here on the net. In many cases, multiple photographs, such as night, winter, summer and other images were taken of each property. A large collection of still and video images photographed between 1985 and 1986, depicting buildings and street life on the upper East Side, upper West Side, Harlem and Washington Heights is also available, though not yet on-line. For details on this older collection, please email us. The thumbnail photographs shown on-line are not necessarily the best photograph that we have available. When purchasing, if your photographic need is not absolutely time dependent, you may wish to contact us so that we may provide you with the best possible image available for the particular property. We are in the process of improving the index and search capability. We recognize that presently it may be difficult for you to find a particular image on-line since each link contains a continuous stream of EVERY BUILDING on a particular side of a street from one section to another (for example: the every property on the north side of 34 Street from Fifth Avenue to the FDR). We are working to improve the index. Soon, you will soon be able to search by address or block and lot or by clicking on a detailed map. If you can not locate a property, please send an email for our prompt assistance in locating an image for the property. We can also provide you with custom photographs on short notice. To search this page by a single keyword or phrase, press the Ctrl and the F key at the same time. After the individual thumbnail images appear on your computer screen, you will have to scroll across and down the page until you find the property that you are seeking. Be sure to use the BACK and FORWARD keys, on your browser, to return to this index page.
