The site has become so popular since its very recent inception that many people can't get on right now. I got a message to try later due to unusually heavy usage.

As did I, but I figured I'd probably forget to post the link later. There's a few transit-related pics from the archives in

If all 870,000 photos are as interesting and as high quality as these examples are, this will be an amazing thing indeed.

Due to overwhelming demand, the New York City Municipal Archives Online Gallery is unavailable at present. Maintenance activities are underway to address this issue.

I think it is reasonable to say that the City underestimated the response and that it will be a while before the site will be easily accessed.

I assume this picture was taken after the stub to City Hall was torn down:

It would sure seem that way. You can see the stub end of the City Hall branch at the mid-bottom of the photo. I also assume that service on the lower level of this elevated line was not in service when this photo was taken, as the lower level served Second Avenue El trains. Service below 59th Street ended on the Second Avenue El in 1942 and the City Hall Branch was torn down around 1950 or so.

The City Hall Branch ran until July 1953. It was the South Ferry Branch that ended in December 1950.

Does anyone see how to obtain decent sized/resolution versions of these photos without buying anything?

The best I could do is save the large thumbnails, such as this of Park Row terminal.

View page source. Find the url for the photo, beginning with http://mtprawvwdorlna1.nyc.gov/, copy it, paste into address bar, and replace the number after Size with 4.
