Check Out Old Archive Footage of New York City’s Streets
We stumbled across a pretty cool YouTube channel today we thought we’d pass along. The Kino Library, an independent London based film archive has loads of old footage that they typically use to supply commercial projects, but have also released samples of online. They have footage from the UK punk scene, old ads and every decade of the 20th century. It’s all pretty fascinating stuff when you start digging into it.
The clips shared on this post are a few of their offerings featuring New York City. Of particular interest to me were the clips from Harlem and the Lower, which feature plenty of graff, but also show the drastic changes in the neighborhood over the year. Check them out and see if you recognize any body popping up in the background.
