BROADWAY: 2015 V. 1899

What more appropriate way to begin a year than by complete denial of our time and place, courtesy of some footage of old New York? Immerse yourself, if you will, in this journey down Broadway--via Union Square I believe--photographed sometime in the very late 19th century. Enjoy the white horse that almost collides with the cameraman, the women with big asses, the men with funny hats. And if you know New York at all, be startled with how little lower Broadway has changed over the seemingly long but in fact awfully short last century.
