    Default Need framable quality prints

    Hi All, this forum is a great find. I have been doing research for the past several months looking for historic photographs of New York, in particular downtown NY to decorate an office. I have a small collection of candidates mostly from the New York Times Store, Shorpy, NY Public Library and the Museum of the City of NY. However, there are loads of photos I see in this thread that are not found on these sites, which are reputable and can guarantee a certain level of quality for framing and hanging. I would very much appreciate if the contributors to this thread can point me to where I can buy these photos, enlarged to fit a frame approximately 24 x 19". Thanks!

    Richard Sandler’s 80s: When Greed was Good

    34th Street, 1980

    New York City street photographer Richard Sandler was handed a Leica in 1977, a simple action that changed the vector of his life. He began photographing the streets of New York, tapping into the pulse of the 80s. “You are recording your time,” says Sandler. “You are looking for trends. If you are in the street, you see it. You see everything on the street.” From his 5th avenue furs to the graffiti strewn subways, Sandler brings the grit and the glamor of the Reagan era to the surface.

    You won’t see Sandler on the streets much anymore. He feels cell phones have robbed photographers of their subjects. “There is nothing more boring, nothing more nondescript and vacant than a person on a cell phone walking down the street. They seem to be out of the game,” Sandler says. “People are walking around in bubbles.”

    These days you will find Sandler making films—a medium he finds infinitely easier than still photography. His Gods of Times Square won critical praise is 2000. Sandler is currently working on a documentary about the history of Martha’s Vineyard.

    More work from Richard Sandler is available on his website.

    I'm SO glad you resisted the impulse to delete this thread--it's fantastic!! Thank you!!!
    I lived in New York from 1964-67, worked at CBS-TV and then in the PR Dept. at the Parks Dept. when Tom Hoving was there. Am now writing a novel that takes place in the city in 1867. Here's the URL for my earlier book, to which this will be a sequel:

    Pic #7 of the Barclay-Vesey Building (Verizon) is just amazing. Nothing to spoil the view of Art Deco splendour.

    As much as I love the current Columbus Circle and 15 CPW, that view in 1944 is really awesome.

    And those kids getting all that physical exercise! It's a revelation!

    Incredible images among 870,000 photos of NYC now available to the public for the first time

    In this Dec. 22, 1936, Works Progress Administration photo provided by the New York City Municipal Archives, a man looks at the Hudson River from the New York tower of the George Washington Bridge.

    NEW YORK — The two men were discovered dead at the bottom of an elevator shaft in a 12-story Manhattan building, as if dumped there, one man sprawled on top of the other.
    The rare crime scene photograph from Nov. 24, 1915, is one of 870,000 images of New York City and its municipal operations now available to the public on the Internet for the first time.
    The city Department of Records officially announced the debut of the photo database Tuesday. A previously unpublicized link to the imageshas been live for about two weeks.

    Culled from the Municipal Archives collection of more than 2.2 million images going back to the mid-1800s, the photographs feature all manner of city oversight — from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.
    The project was four years in the making, part of the department’s mission to make city records accessible to everyone, said department assistant commissioner Kenneth Cobb.
    “We all knew that we had fantastic photograph collections that no one would even guess that we had,” Cobb said.

(AP Photo/New York City Municipal Archives, WPA Federal Writers' Project)

    Taken mostly by anonymous municipal workers, some of the images have appeared in publications but most were accessible only by visiting the archive offices in lower Manhattan over the past few years.
    Researchers, history buffs, filmmakers, genealogists and preservationists in particular will find the digitized collection helpful. But anyone can search the images, share them through social media or purchase them as prints.
    The gallery includes images from the largest collection of criminal justice evidence in the English-speaking world, a repository that holds glass-plate photographs taken by the New York City Police Department.
    It also features more than 800,000 color photographs taken with 35mm cameras of every city building in the mid-1980s to update the municipal records, and includes more than 1,300 rarely seen images taken by local photographers of the Depression-era Works Progress Administration.
