The Museum of the City of New York has collected thousands of images that document the Big Apple from Aqueduct to Staten Island. Recently, they contracted with several website design companies to create this collections portal. First-time visitors will find orange-hued rows of images that represent a small fraction of their collection. Each row represents one of the five boroughs, and visitors can click on each image to get a flavor of the community. Each image comes complete with a detailed description, along with a tab where visitors can view related images. Also, visitors can add images to their own lightbox for future reference and use. The site also includes a basic and advanced search engine, and it is worth typing in terms like "bridges", "Central Park", and "subways" to get a flavor for the offerings here. [KMG]
