Abstract (in English)

Fully computerized the Urban Cultural Resources Survey will be able to furnish detailed information on almost every component on New York City's built environment. Teams of architectural historians, photographers and community group volunteers are gathering data not only on potential and designated landsmarks and historic districts but also on office buildings, street furniture, bridges, factories, parks, vistas, wharves, trees, gravestones - every material ingredient both splendid and ordinary of New York City's cultural heritage.
