Just another day in NYC

Here's some really great footage of a typical day in New York City in 1911. Unlike similar video from that era, this has been time corrected to look more natural, with sound added for effect.

I love the real look at how prevalent horse and carriage was and how carriages, the new motor cars and trolleys jockey for position on the streets, with no traffic lights or stop signs. The fashion is fascinating as well.
