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!

I have a bit of discretionary money (1k). Rather than just letting it sit in a bank account earning basically no interest, I am opting to dip my toes in to the world of stocks, options, investing, etc. Other than buying shares in a company I am already aware of and think is going to do well in the future (which isn't always that simple, I know), how do people independently (ie. not via a broker) research and learn about other stocks and worthy investments?

Restructuring my college course on information literacy to make it more interesting and relevant to students. I'm looking for really interesting resources related to topics in information: intellectual freedom, authority as a social construct, issues with bias and objectivity, information as a commodity, metadata, primary source research, research as the quest for truth, remix culture/creative commons, etc. [more inside]

How do I find reputable, factual, unbiased sources of information? Anything from breaking news (global or local) to current issues to scientific studies. I'm looking for the kinds of sources that will give a good overview or analysis of a topic, and then show me their sources so that I can investigate further if I wish. Websites and printed sources are the most helpful for me as a student, but I welcome any suggestions. [more inside]

LawFilter: So I have a name, birthday, and dates of conviction -- How can I find the details of the case(s)? I assume I know the state. This information was presented on a state's sex offenders list and I would like more details as to the case.

I have recently seen a map of Congress that listed the number of Representatives that had been indicted, seen war, had been divorced, etc. What kind of public records are available about a landmark building like the Hancock Tower in Chicago and how can I get a hold of them? [more inside]
