Walking Tour Examples

Look into the history of a particular address on the tour:

  • Search by address for historical photographs of the site or places nearby on the New York Public Library’s Old NYC: Mapping Historical Photographs of New York City.
  • Search for building history in the NYPL’s digitized collection of New York City Directories.

Conduct research on a person or publication featured on the tour:

  • What basic information is available about your publications and its writers or editors? (Were you able to find anything with a basic Google search?)
  • Are there scholarly articles available about your publications? If so, list the articles. (Go to Pace University Library – Databases – MLA International Bibliography)
  • Are there copies of the original publication available? If so, where? (Go to NYPL – Databases – WorldCat. Enter the title in the “search for” box, and “title” in the dropdown menu next to that box. In the “limit type to” section, click the box marked “Serial Publications”)
  • What is the building where the publication was headquartered being used for now? Is there any indication at that site of its history in relation to New York’s Spanish-language press?
