New York City back in the 1950′s

Decided to continue with the NYC oldies series. The images on this piece are from the late 40′s and mid to late 1950′s.

Archive.org is where I found the majority of the films and photographs. A wonderful site where one can get lost and rummage as if it were your neighbor’s attic. Little gems of history appear shyly before ones eyes at all times. What an amazing trove of unique treasures!

I chose the music – New York, New York – (for obvious reasons) and the singer – Liza Minelli – because of her intensity and passion when she sang it live in Paris, France.

Enjoy the journey back to the past…

P.S. working on a follow up video that concentrates on NYC people and its food in the 50′s, stay tuned!
