Storyline

"This picture is very novel and interesting. It gives the complete trip from the station at the New York City end of the bridge to the station at the Brooklyn end, as seen from the front end of a third rail car running at high speed. The entire trip consumes three minutes of time, during which abundant opportunity is given to observe all the structural wonders of the bridge, and far distant river panorama below." Written by AMB Picture Catalogue (1902)

Across Twelve Decades
10 January 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Twelve decades have passed since the cameraman -- possibly Billy Bitzer, but unknown -- put his camera on a train and took a tracking shot of the Brooklyn Bridge, from the Manhattan station to the Brooklyn station. For one thing, it would have been described as a panorama shot back them.

That would not be an issue. the cameraman knew how to do the shot back then and could do it today. ot so many people would be interested. It might be used as a brief introductory shot, but the thought that anyone would consider it a major part of a film program would astonish most denizens of 2019. Anyone could do this by pulling out a smart phone and hitting the video button. Heck, I could do it, and I'm inept.

So that's one thing that's changed: the technology and access to it.

On the other hand, they've shut down the L line for repairs, so Brooklyn is harder to get to. Maybe we aren't so smart
