Old Footage Of New York In The 1920’s Will Take You Back In Time

This 1920’s footage takes you on a tour of New York City and shows off some of the finer points of life in the Big Apple during the era. While we do recognize many of the spots, other shots from this quick clip look like a whole different country!

We can’t get over the shot of “traffic” on 5th Avenue… and those old Coney Island rides look so fun!

Old footage like this makes us both miss the “good ol’ days” and feel very thankful to live with the modern conveniences we enjoy today!
