A collection of websites chosen by subject specialists from the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library at Columbia University. The collection's principal thematic focus is documenting the evolution of the built environment and public spaces through the interaction of historic preservation efforts and new development projects within urban planning debates, particularly in and around New York City.
70,000 openly accessible and shareable core records for works of architecture and the built environment compiled by the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library at Columbia University, Artstor, and the Getty Research Institute.
Digitized images of measured drawings, black-and-white photographs, color transparencies, photo captions, data pages including written histories, and supplemental materials on architecture, engineering, and design.
The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has written a designation report on each individual landmark and historic district. The reports prepared after the mid-1970s are valuable sources on information on individual buildings, architects, neighborhoods and building types and include useful bibliographies.
