How to get a job in Greenwich Village

The authors of The New Inside Guide to Greenwich Village, a cool little handbook published in 1965, seem to assume that anyone moving to the Village back then did so to pursue some kind of artistic endeavor. Therefore, they needed sound advice on how to actually pay the bills.

Not very enlightening, unfortunately. But this next part details who to call if you’re looking for temp work. I guess Miss Rae was the 1965 equivalent of Career Blazers?

    You can try ordering what’s called a Tax Photo from the NYC Department of Records. In 1940 the department took a picture of every structure in the city; these photos are on file and usually available to the general public. You need to know the house number and address, and each photo costs at least $35.

    Here’s the order form: http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/pdf/tpof.pdf.

    Good luck!
