In the Street was an interesting short documentary of the New York tenement streets during the late '40s
28 July 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this documentary short on YouTube. It's just mainly images depicted in the tenement streets of New York as photographed in the late '40s. There are faces and figures of various races, nationalities, ages, and colors all dancing, dressing in costumes, playing, fighting, walking, running, looking at the movie camera, and just being there having a time that's like no other. Among the people providing these images is one James Agee who is probably best known as a movie critic of LIFE magazine. And the whole thing is scored by a piano that tinkles some of the most sadly haunting music that sometimes turns joyful though still slowly soft. So on that note, if you like moving photos, I recommend In the Street.
