The New York Public Library Online

Einige interessante Fotosammlungen der New York Public Library, auf die ich aufmerksam machen möchte. Die in verschiedene Abteilungen der Bibliothek befindlichen Einzelsammlungen sind bedeutende Dokumente der Geschichte New Yorks und Nordamerikas. Sie spiegeln aber auch die Geschichte und Herkunft der verschiedenen Zuwanderer.
