Postcards


More than 5,500 images from the Museum's postcard collection are available online. The postcards feature views from all five boroughs of New York City, dating from the late 19th century through the present. The postcards depict iconic New York landmarks such as Central Park, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty, but also provide views of lesser-seen locales such as Edgewater Camp in the Bronx, the filing room of the Metropolitan Life Building, and the Far Rockaway Fire Department in Queens. Many of the post-cards have unique touches to distinguish them from other views of the same location, such as hand-coloring and tinseling.
