Here's a nice little silent collection of New York City footage shot in 1938. Nothing spectacular but nice views of midtown, Harlem (warning: contains footage of young kids tap-dancing and eating watermelon), the then-new George Washington Bridge, the not yet built west-side highway area (which looks like an elaborate park), pretty views of Rockefeller Center and a strange shot of the Rockettes rehearsing a dance number on the roof of the Radio City Music Hall. A peacefully quiet video with no mis-selected music to distract your attention from the reverie of another era.
