Rights & Reproductions
Our Rights & Reproductions department assists those seeking reproductions of images from the collections of the Museum of the City of New York for personal use and those needing permission for limited scholarly or commercial use in any medium.
Reproduction, public display, or distribution of an image from the Museum's collection from any copy format (digital or print) via any medium requires the permission of the Museum. The Museum determines and collects a permission fee for such uses and provides high-resolution digital files for reproduction purposes. Fees will vary depending on the specifics of each request.
For further information about fees and ordering procedures, please contact the Museum's Rights and Reproductions office by telephone at (212) 534-1672 ext. 3375, by fax at (917) 492-3960, or by email at email@example.com.
