"Filmed only three years before the outbreak of World War I, the everyday life of the city recorded here — street traffic, people going about their business — has a casual, almost pastoral quality." Some landmarks you can recognize from the video: - Flatiron Building (built 1902) - Statue of Liberty - New York Herald Building (doesn't exist anymore) - New York Harbor - Brooklyn Bridge.
The early 1900s were a period of rapid change for New York City. The city's population was ballooning as an influx of immigrants passed through Ellis Island. Massive skyscrapers began popping up seemingly overnight, many of them among the tallest in the world at the time. And new technology such as automobiles and elevated trains made the city more accessible than ever. Video computer-enhanced and colorized by Denis Shiryaev.
