Exploring the NYC municipal archives

A photojournalist for the New York Times made a series of photographs of the New York City Municipal Archives building. The weird thing about this visit, he states, was that altough he used to work for the city, he had no idea that this place existed! He took  photographes of several balls and mayoral announcements in the main space but had no clue what was inside of the closed doors around the building. Here are some of the photos from inside.
