With so many people worldwide with connections to immigrants coming to New
York City this restored film >from 1911 may be of interest.

Revisit New York City in 1911 is a restored film shot by a Swedish
documentary team which set out to capture the most celebrated places in the
world at the time.

In 1911, New York City was approaching 5 million people. The clothing and
modes of transportation are the most fascinating. This was shown last year
at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
