1930’s New York, A Video Interlude


A visual treat of Manhattan streetlife in 1934 (Click the timeline to 1:45 and watch to 5:20) and a glimpse into the City of yesteryear. New York was in the throes of The Depression, but alas was teeming with activity. Notice the details. The decor of the streetlamps, the elevated train, peddlers and pantaloons amongst the throngs of the bustling crowd. This blog tries to address The City of change, The City in flux, but sometimes it’s fun to just watch and remember The Past.
