Welcome to Urban Archive ("Urban Archive," "we," "us" or "our"), the App that empowers you to learn about New York history where it happened.
The Service allows users to explore locations in New York City by using Urban Archive’s location-aware App, push notifications, and images from the historical collections of various institutions.
