    This country really took off after the Industrial Revolution. Amazing how they were able to build tall buildings and bridges as early 1900.

    What is with the qualifier "recognizable"?
    There is OLDER footage but we wouldn't recognize it at New York. The kentiscope was invented almost ten years before this "oldest footage"(recognizable).

    Shit, there are photographs of new york decades older...

    OK.

    Thanks... you....

    I guess

    Kind of odd to see a fight on the street and it was between two white guys, and nobody was yelling worldstar

    Especially when you consider that the Civil War had ended a mere 30 or so years before.

    Pretty cool. The cops on horseback in Central Park: they all look the same.
