1940s New York: Explore the 1943 New York City Market Analysis
The 250-page Market Analysis provides hundreds of photos and color-coded maps, statistics, and short narratives about neighborhoods across the city. The statistics and maps are based on the 1940 Census, providing a rich complement to the individual 1940 Census records that are available online.
Access Locations: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL), All Branch Libraries, Outside the Library
Subjects: Census Data; New York City History; Statistics
Notes: These profiles were published in 1943 by a consortium of four local newspapers – the New York Times, the News Syndicate Co. (now the Tribune Company, then the owner of the Daily News), the Daily Mirror, and Hearst Consolidated Publications (publisher of the New York Journal American). Their purpose was to "aid advertisers in getting from New York the vast volume of sales which only New York can give."
