DigitalSanbornFilter - I need to get my hands on some NYC digital sanborn maps [m to the i]

OK, so I am doing some personal research on two old powerplants in the NYC area: Long Island City Pennsylvania Railroad Power House
and Glenwood Power Plant
(self links). I want a series of Sanborn images for the two sites throughout the 19th century and up to the present day. As you can see from the links, the project is non-commercial in nature (and is basically for knowledge sakes) and not something I really want to spend money on Sanborns. The NYPL doesn't seem to allow acces to the digital sanborns - only print. Does anyone know where you can get free digital sanborns
? Or if anyone has an account and can help out an ameteur historian? Also, if anyone has any information about those sites, email me (in profile). Thanks.
