Blog: A Brief Guide to Building Research in NYC

By Philip Sutton, Milstein Division of U.S. History, Local History & Genealogy, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building of  the New York Public Library, October 14, 2011.

The New York Public Library’s Milstein Division is home to one of the largest free United States history, local history, and genealogy collections in the country, and many of the library’s patrons are writing their family histories. Many reference questions pertain to building histories, especially in the light of genealogy. Afterall, those ancesters lived somewhere, and it’s natural to wonder what it was like where they lived.

Sometimes patrons are curious about the buildings they live in, when the buildings were built, and by whom. They might wonder, “Who lived in my apartment building?,” “What were they like?,” and “What were their lives like?” The library gets these type of questions so often, they put together a brief guide to the kinds of materials that you might use to research a New York City building’s history.

SBA’s core operations are focused around Capital, Contracting and Counseling.

Capital: SBA guarantees loans to businesses to help them start, grow and succeed.

Contracting: SBA serves as an advocate on behalf of small businesses, helping ensure small businesses have access to the nearly $100 billion of federal contracts available to them.

Counseling: SBA provides counseling and training to small businesses around the country through a national network of more than 14,000 resource partners including Small Business Development Centers, Women’s Business Centers, Veteran Business Centers and SCORE. SBA-supported counseling and training makes a difference: Those who receive counseling and training are more likely to start businesses, their businesses are more likely to survive over the ensuing years, and they are better prepared to seek financing and to plan effectively for future business growth.

In addition, there are local events, e-learning and videos available as resources.
