I'd like to compile a list of businesses in New York City—starting with Manhattan—that have been around for 100 years or more. I'd also like to include places the public can visit that aren't "businesses" per se.
I'm guessing this information is publicly available, but I don't know where to start. Any guidance would be extremely helpful. Thanks!

My boss has asked me to work on getting our company a contract with the U.S. government's General Services Administration (GSA). I have been doing some research and reading everything I can about it, but I think this may be too big of a job for just me. Does anyone have any experience with working on a contract like this or know of any good resources for help? Anything that any of you can offer would be great. Thanks!

Hunting for report/ article: Of the top ten/ hundred US/ World companies in 1900, only three still exist today. Is such a report apocryphal, or if not, do you know where it is?

My friend is trying to start a business and is currently writing his business plan. He needs to do market research, but is having trouble finding the information he needs on google or other searches. Any tips on how to do market research for free without paying for a consulting service? If that is the only way, what is the pricing like for those services? Thanks!

Iam trying to figure out how many small IT shops there are with under 25 people. I was given a quote that there are 50,000 IT service providers with headcounts under 25 that are selling a service, i.e. Managed Service Provider (MSP). The source indicated this number came from Gartner.

I own a very small company, and I feel that my product is the best in its category. If I can just get my message to the masses, my company will be a success (otherwise I'll have to go back to work for "the man"). What's the best way to ge the message out? I realize that everyone is advertising-averse, and I don't want to consider anything that might irritate people.
