Thank you all for your feedback and help with NY CITY Directories. Here is
what I have found out.

Albany, NYS Library: has them all, but they must be used there, NOT
available for loan.

Buffalo, Erie County Library: "scattered holdings of NYC Business
Directoties. Our best coverage is 1852-1917, with 1931, 1933-4. There are
no birth, death,or marriage records."

Rochester - no NY City Directories

Syracuse, Onondaga County Public Library: They have 1899-1902, 1909-1911,
and 1918-1921.

Hope this is helpful. 1901, 1911, 1921, 1931 is not bad!

<I need to gather vital statistics on the large NY City branches of my
Armenian <Family. I would rather not go all the way to NYCity and am
wondering where in <Western NY there may be a source of NY City directories
1900 - 1933 (film/fiche <is fine). The Toronto Reference Library only has
the NYC directories on <fiche/film for the late 1800's.

<Working through the LDS, ordering in films year by year, is too costly and
slow <for my needs at this time.
