Name & Property Research

Name Search - If you are unsure of the spelling of a name, it is sometimes better to type in the first few letters of the name in order to get the most results. For example, enter "John" to get results for John, Johnny, and Johnnie.

Do not use punctuation such as periods after initials or commas between names.

Capitalization is not necessary. The search pays no attention to upper or lower case.

Property Search - If you want to see only one address on a street, type in the exact street number. For example, 193 Jefferson. To search a range of addresses on a street, type in the first one or two digits of the block you want to see. For example, to view details of addresses in the 2300 block of Central Avenue, type in "23" and "Central".

When typing in a street name, you do not need to type in street directions, such as "N" or "North" for "North Parkway". Likewise, you do not need to enter the type of thoroughfare, such as "Blvd,", "Ave.", "St.", etc. Thus, 1765 North Parkway Boulevard will be found if you type in "1765 Parkway".

Do not type in an apartment number or suite number in the "street name" blank.

Types of Information - Below the blanks in which you type the name or address a series of check boxes next to the types of information available to search in The Daily News. You may choose as many of these boxes as you like by simply clicking on each box with your mouse. If an "x" appears in the box, then The Daily News will search that category of information. If you change your mind and want to remove the "x", simply click again.

Maximum Results - If your search is so broad that it will return more than 250 results for a given data type, the results for that type will not be displayed. You will need to refine your search results. Try being more specific or use the date range feature to limit the results.
