New York City History
To effectively search New York City Views, please note that Avenue and Street names were inconsistently cited in the original sources (sometimes cited as numbers and other times spelled out). It is recommended that the researcher try variants which may obtain different results. Typing multiple words generates a default AND search. An asterisk (*) serves as a truncation wildcard for one or more characters. For best results we recommend a searcher always use the asterisk (*) truncation wildcard after the abbreviations Ave. and St. For example, to find photographs of The New York Public Library's landmark building at 42nd Street try both: 5th Ave* 42nd St* (or just 5th Ave* 42nd) Fifth Ave* 42nd St*
