For persons with an interest in the always topical subject of New York real estate, this collection will be very welcome and worthy of numerous return visits. The New York Real Estate Brochure Collection was donated to the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library by Yale Robbins, Henry Robbins, and David Magier in 1986. Currently, the Columbia University Libraries are in the process of digitizing all 9200 residential brochures, floor plans, price lists and related materials from this substantial collection. For the time being, visitors can access all of the materials from Brooklyn, and other boroughs will come online in the future. On the homepage, visitors can search the collection, or elect to browse around by address, name, neighborhood, architects, or owners. Also, users are welcome to leave their own comments on each building's page, and no doubt this feature will constitute an interesting body of user-generated content over the coming months and years.
