Obtaining publication quality reproductions of photographs from the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives’ Collections.


Photographic images within the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives Website's New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) Photograph Collection are owned by NYCHA. Researchers will need the permission of NYCHA to reproduce any NYCHA Collection image(s).
To obtain this permission, researchers must contact, specifically, Andy Nagy, Media Services Technician, Department of Communications- andy.nagy@nycha.nyc.gov . You should also CC Humberto Rosero, Senior Video Producer & Media Services Manager, Department of Communications at NYCHA - humberto.rosero@nycha.nyc.gov in your e-mail.
Researchers must provide them with the precise photographs wanted, according to LaGuardia and Wagner Archives Photograph ID Number and an explanation of the Intended Use of the images.
The Archivist at the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives must be in receipt of NYCHA’s approved permission to use any images (either by NYCHA’s cc'd e-mail, or the researcher forwarding the Archivist their e-mail showing NYCHA approval), before LaGuardia and Wagner Archives can release any NYCHA reproductions for use to researchers.

For all other Photograph Collections, the Archivist will let the researcher know if LaGuardia and Wagner Archives holds the copyright. If so, there will be a Use Fee. If another institution/person holds the copyright, the Archivist will provide as much contact information as is available, so that researchers can contact them for permission for use, and pay any fees they may charge.

The Archives must be in receipt of payment for any reproductions, before they may be released for use.




If you have not already done so, search the Archives’ Website to determine which specific photograph image(s), by LaGuardia and Wagner Archives Photograph ID Number (i.e., 08.001.XXXX), you wish to obtain Reproductions of/permission for Use. If you have already searched, the Collection/Photograph ID#’s will appear below automatically.
