The Atlantic, which has to be the finest magazine in America, have compiled a remarkable collection of photos from the newly released database of the New York City Municipal Archives. Their collection numbers some 2.2 million images of New York in the twentieth century, from which, 870,000 photos have been made available for public use. It’s truly inspiring to see the wonderful city evolve over the decades.
