Historians will drool as they watch this...
23 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This very short film (typical of the length of a film at the turn of the century) is of the Southern portion of Manhattan near Battery Park. To get the shot, they filmed from a deck of a boat. You get to various docks, a new old cruise chip, the Pennsylvania and Lehigh Valley Railroads buildings, ferries and various buildings. As I have said about many of the short films of New York I have seen, it's not the sort of thing the average viewer would love--but would make history teachers drool. After all, it's a great and irreplaceable look into our past from over a hundred years ago--and so much has changed. Buildings have gotten taller and an aircraft carrier and convention center might be in the same shot. Fascinating...at least to me. And, featuring very nice camera-work for 1903.
