If anyone is looking in Westchester County, New York (just north of the city), this site might be helpful:  http://www.westchestergov.com/wcarchives/

This site recently added a very helpful search feature for its indexes -

The Brooklyn public library has digitized city directories and telephone books from 1856-1967.  Some of them also cover other parts of New York City.  https://archive.org/details/brooklynpubliclibrary?&sort=titleSorter&page=2
