Take a Taxi Through Vintage New York City

created at: 07/21/2015If you're interested in the actual design, style, and swagger of a forgotten era, step into this time-capsule and see life as it really was in 1970's New York City. As someone who was once able to claim the moniker of a New Yorker, I found this footage engaging but I think any stranger to the land will as well. I feel like as modern men, most of our experience of the styles of the past are filtered through cinematic recreations, which is why I found this silent footage so striking. Just seeing the streets, the lights, and the people (especially void of sound) casts the whole nostalgic experience a different light. 

Watch this widescreen POV shot of a taxi ride through Times Square down 7th Avenue and Broadway and experience history in a whole new way.
