    I love this film of New York City in 1939 it is simply amazing. New York was a wondrous modern city in 1939. It would be great to go back in a time machine and just walk around for one day.

    Wow. Still looks so big, but so little congestion. They should have titled this "The Big Apple before the shit took over".

    Great find here.

    Hard to believe that just 35 years later this was NYC.

    NY like when I was a kid. Fun City!

    Those poor black people back then. So oppressed they had to wear lame business attire like suits and dresses instead of sports jerseys and Nikes.

    The film may be from 1939, but the music is straight-up 70's porn. :secret:

    Yup, the white man ruled back then. You could beat your wife, kids, and your negroid housekeeper and not get into trouble.
