Talk about “Throwback Thursday” – this footage, the oldest in existence, really is pretty incredible. Some map graphics have been added in case you aren’t that familiar with the city. Viewers get to pinpoint exactly where these landmarks are in contemporary New York City. I think a new way to edit this, much of it shot by Thomas Edison‘s studio, might be to show a split screen with 2015 NYC. A warning; unless you like an unnecessary and annoying soundtrack, MUTE. Otherwise, watch!
