NYC History In Pictures

In this Nov 24, 1915 photo provided by the New York City Municipal Archives, the bodies of elevator operator Robert Green, left and Jacob Jagendorf, a building engineer, lie at the bottom of an elevator shaft in New York. Over 870,000 photos from an archive that exceeds 2.2 million images have been scanned and made available online, for the first time giving a global audience a view of a rich collection that documents life and sometimes death in New York City.
