Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.

Photographic and illustrated postcards relating to Naples, New York in the Finger Lakes region. In particular, the images highlight the natural features of the area, especially Canandaigua Lake throughout the early to mid-20th century.
The Port Washington Main Street Collection brings together photographs, postcards, and other historic materials that reflect the rich past of this community nestled between Manhasset and Hempstead Bays.
The collection provides pictorial information showing locomotives and rolling stock of railroads that once served New York State and adjacent states and provinces.
