The Kid Should See This

Eighty Years of New York City, Then and Now

From The New Yorker, enjoy this split-screen juxtaposition of New York City in the 1930s and today. 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.

Next: 16mm Kodachrome film of New York City from 1939 and more from the 1930s. Plus: 40,000 years of London history created with papercraft and Incredible color footage of London in 1927.
