This is in many ways the story of my family's history in Brooklyn. Really wish I could make it!

1830s NYC Firefighting map - from the days prior to a city-wide, municipal fire department!
Before the establishment of the paid, professional Metropolitan Fire Department in 1865, New York City firefighting was an all-volunteer affair. This map, printed in 1834, was intended to mark locations of resources and split the city into districts, so that the many small volunteer fire companies could better handle emergencies.

Cool pictures of daily work in NYC in the 19th c.
Alice Austen took these street photographs in 1896, hoping to capture the kinds of people you might see out and about in Manhattan. They’re part of an album that Austen titled “Street Types of New York.”

Can anyone recommend a service that for turning a blog into a book?

I recently rediscovered an old blog I briefly kept when I was studying abroad in college, and decided I'd like to have it in hard copy - there are stories on there I'd completely forgotten about and would like to preserve a bit more permanently.
