Treasures of the New York City Municipal Archives

Pauline TooleThe Daily News offers a glimpse of the extraordinary holdings of the New York City Municipal Archives in an article and a video that feature Commissioner Pauline Toole (Department of Records and Information Services) and Australian historian Shane White, who conducted research at the Archives—and at the Division of Old Records—for his latest book, Prince of Darkness: The Untold Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire. The vast resources of the Archives will be described in great detail in the NYG&B’s forthcoming book, The Municipal Archives of New York City: An Authorized Guide for Family Historians, which is being produced with the full cooperation of the Archives staff. Publication details will be announced later this year on our website and our blog.
