It seems Edison made a ton of these panorama films back in '03. They probably rented a boat for a couple of days, packed sandwiches and beer and floated around New York with the camera pointed at buildings. As panoramas go this one isn't as bad as some - Panorama of Riker's Island for example. What a stinker that was - Lord only knows what they were thinking of there. Plenty of old boats to admire here if that's what, erm, floats your boat and the camera zips along at quite a rate of knots so you're not left staring at the same building as it inches agonisingly across the screen. You can't help sort of marvelling at the lack of imagination displayed by these early movie makers, though. One of the greatest inventions of the past hundred years to play with and this is all they can come up with after eight years?
