One of the prime resource for coal chute covers is this book by Diana Stuart. I can spend hours just perusing through these pages and try to visit the locations of them so that I may photograph them myself. But I have one gripe with book – some if the information such as the address are incorrect. The other day I went in search of a coal chute supposedly at 131 Bedford Street in the West Village, but there is no such address. Also, why not pay some attention and not show the photos upside down?
