Ric Burns “New York”

Glance - New York - 2015

I’ve been enjoying this 1999 documentary recommended by my friend Jamie Smith. It’s available for free streaming on Amazon Instant Video.

I started on episode 5 which began in 1919 and went through the building and opening of the Empire State Building in 1931. I’m now into episode 6 which starts out lamenting the impacts of the automobile on city life.

Filmed before 9/11, many of the images include the World Trade Center twin towers.
