The Museum of the City of New York is currently in the midst of a long-term project to provide increased access to its holdings to the broadest audience possible. In order to put our resources towards that effort we are not currently able assist with individual research requests. When that changes, this text will be updated. One aspect of the project, begun in 2008, is the digitization of its holdings, starting with the vast collections of photographs, prints, and other works on paper depicting the changing city over time, now available via our online Collections Portal.
The Museum’s website provides information about our reproduction services – http://collections.mcny.org/Rights.

I want to find out who wallpapered the Empire State Building. It may have been my grandfather, Max Perlman, and his business partner. Any suggestions? Thank you. Barbara Krasner firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi I went there as a kid in the 1970’s. And whatever movie you made the kids watch back then, randomly, my mom was in it. How would I figure out what video/film you used to show back then? And where would I see it?
