Congratulations to New York Heritage Digital Collection’s sister site, New York State Historic Newspapers, which celebrated its six MILLIONTH scanned image in August.
The New York Evening Post is considered to be the 13th oldest newspaper published in the United States. It was established by Alexander Hamilton in 1801, and mainly covered New York City and its surrounding area.
The New York State Historic Newspaper project provides the Post’s years 1832-1878, with additional years forthcoming. The Elmer Holmes Bobst Library at New York University provided the microfilm for the digitization of this title.
The NYS Historic Newspapers project provides free online access to a wide range of newspapers chosen to reflect New York’s unique history. It is in its third year of operation and receives more than one million page views every month.
Organizations wishing to participate in the project can contact their local library council.
