New York City, 1940s

Here is a silent home movie from the 1940s showing a New York City art show (I still go to them and buy stuff -- but I don't think I'd buy what I see here. . . .].

It starts with a familiar scene in the Square, but moves to the Village.

Check out the Good Humor Man in the final frames.


Gahd I wish I knew the New York of the '40s and '50s. . . .

What? Not even the painting of the majestic moose?

Of course not.

That would be wrong.

And might piss folks off. . . .
