Dear Mr. O’Connor:
I am writing in response to your FOIL request for records pertaining to Camp Siegfried on Long Island. The only responsive records we have are the approximately 100 photographs taken by the New York City Police Department’s Alien Squad to document the Camp. All the images have been digitized and are available on our website, www.nyc.gov/records<http://www.nyc.gov/records> (click on photo gallery and then type “Siegfried” in the search box).
