Cross the Brooklyn Bridge, tour Central Park, see huge differences in midtown and Times Square, get a glimpse at Harlem, and compare Grand Central, Fifth Avenue, Riverside Drive, the West Side Highway, and other famous sites in both eras. The video closes crossing the Queensboro Bridge: Eighty Years of New York City, Then and Now.
