(No audio) Brooklyn to New York via Brooklyn Bridge filmed in 1899. The 111 years that distances us from this just seem to disappear.
Historical background: In 1898, the modern City of New York was formed with the consolidation of Brooklyn (until then an independent city), Manhattan and outlying areas. The opening of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 did for the city what railroad expansion and the Erie Canal did for the nation.
The population was expanding due to immigration and commerce was booming.
