A new app — Urban Archive — is here to help, mining the collections of New York City’s institutions to create a mobile archive for the public. Working with Brooklyn Historical Society, the New York Public Library and the Museum of the City of New York, the team behind Urban Archive has already made more than 2,500 historic images accessible and has more than 50,000 queued up and waiting.”
