Public Domain Images from New York Public Library

Categorize this as super cool.  I found out via The Verge that the New York Public Library uploaded somewhere around 200,000 images that can be used freely by anyone.

The NYPL website can be found here – and there’s a lot to explore.  Not sure exactly how to do it yet, but I will definitely have to do some exploring soon for some neat images.  The featured image of this post comes from a ‘then-and-now‘ section of the archive, which compares images from 1911 5th Avenue to 2015 5th Avenue.  I really like that kind of photo comparison, I find it neat to see how much has stayed the same.

There’s some really cool images of American history to be found here – so take some time to check it out!
