Berenice Abbott. Changing New York.
The Library’s Changing New York archive contains more than 2,200 duplicate and variant prints representing about three-quarters of the 302 images contained in Abbott’s definitive version of the project. The Library’s holding also contains images that continue the project’s negative numbering but fall outside its scope. These anomalous images are included here for historical and pictorial purposes. The Library’s archive contains contact and enlarged prints, primarily from the 1930s, from several sources within NYPL that were united in 1989, supplemented by occasional purchases and generous gifts beginning in 1988
