The easiest way is to use very popular and helpful site like, but knowledge about particular building and Real Estate market does not stop there. If you are going thru the process of purchasing or renting apartment you should work with the specialist who will guide you.

You can contact the building's department, or ask your agent, or any local agent/realty office can also help.

Dear Anys4usa,

All building records are public. In NY the best place to star is the NY building department:

If you have a hard time finding it there then contact the county clerk's office where the house is and ask them to fax you the building history that they have on file.

We have a system that pulls public records on building history including sale history. I am happy to save you some time.

Warm regards,
