Did you know that hundreds of New York City landmarks were created or reconstructed during the Great Depression by unemployed architects, engineers, and workers hired by the Federal Government through the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration's New Deal programs that put people back to work? Probably you didn't know because hardly any of them are marked with New Deal plaques or cornerstones for reasons explained here. This page shows just a few of about 1000 New Deal Projects in New York City, some of them used by millions of people every day. Click any image for more information about and/or photos of site.
