Title Real Estate Collection
Date 1844-2002
Description This is an artificial archival collection, meaning that it was assembled by the Staten Island Historical Society from various sources (known and unknown), rather than an organic collection from a particular family or organization. The collection is approximately 4 linear feet in size. Materials are mostly paper-based.

The collection is arranged into the following series:

Locations. This series consists of advertising and ephemera associated with a geographic location, arranged alphabetically by location (Staten Island town names, New Jersey).

Businesses & Organizations. This series consists of advertising and ephemera for real estate properties that could not be associated with a specific Staten Island town. It is arranged alphabetically by names of businesses, agents, organizations, or government entities.

Publications. Includes multiple listing publications, which list and illustrate properties for sale and contain advertisements for multiple businesses. Publications in this series include: Homes and Land of Staten Island, Staten Island Houses, Staten Island Homes. (Publications that are associated with a particular location, business, or organization can be found in the other series.)

(Keywords: Maps, Architects, Architecture, Suburban Subdivisions, Estates, Auctions, New York)
