Travel back in time to the year 1911 and take a stroll through New York City!

The year is 1911 and New York City is brimming with life. William Taft is the President of the United States, the Ford Model T is the only car around, and The Progressive Era is well underway. While movies and television do their best, it’s impossible for us to experience that time period first-hand. Enter this amazing, perfectly restored film footage.

The film was restored from an immaculate print and was originally taken by a Swedish company during a trip to NYC. With slowed speed and added sound, this 7+ minute film is the next best thing to time travel!
