The Streets of NYC

Sparkling tiger cub collars, Wi-Fi securing wallpaper, seasonal carpet and more in our weekly look at the web

The story of New York is told through
870,000 photographs taken from the mid-1800s to the present in a digital photo archive by the New York City
Municipality. Glamorous stills are mixed with gritty candids in the
vast database, which has been digitized for public use.
