Almshouse ledgers collection

The records of the Almshouse ledgers represent the activities of the institutions under the purview of various city departments on Blackwell’s Island. Records date from 1758 to 1952, with the bulk of the records falling between 1832 and 1925. These records document the social service, cultural, medical, and corrections histories of New York City. This collection was processed by the Municipal Archives in 2016 under a grant funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
