Find Your Ancestor's Building in New York City

An interesting city government web site will provide a map and even aerial photographs showing the location of the building where you or your ancestors lived in New York City. You key in a specific address and the result is a map of the area showing an outline of every building.

After locating a building, click "Show Additional Information" and data will be provided such as lot frontage, depth and area; year built; gross floor area; number of residential units; and whether it has been designated as a Landmark building.

If you click on the camera icon you get a slider with years on it, and get aerial photos taken in those years.

To access the maps and aerial photographs, go to: http://gis.nyc.gov/doitt/nycitymap

My thanks to Harold Miller for telling me about this free web site.
