This Video Shows 53 of the Most Iconic New York City Photos From the NYC Municipal Archives

Last year, the New York City Municipal Archives released over 870,000 digital scans of vintage and historic photographs of the City. In this slideshow compilation from YouTube channel Perfect Life, see 53 of the most iconic shots from the collection.

Their subjects include daily life, construction, crime, city business, aerial photographs, and more. I spent hours lost in these amazing photos, and gathered this group together to give you just a glimpse of what's been made available from this remarkable collection.
