New York City in 1938

By Taylor

Always at the forefront of internet happenings, my mother sent me this video earlier today. At first I was hesitant to watch, as her emails primarily consist of thinly-veiled attempts to convince me to move back home and accept my fate working at the Sbarro in Terminal B of the Boston Logan Intl Airport. However, this video was fairly interesting.

Highlights

  • “Orientals”
  • “Colored population”
  • beautiful Jersey shore”
  • a collectively glossy-eyed nation attempting to ignore the increasingly radical policies of the Nazi Party and the impending threat of WWII
  • a narrator whose voice I firmly believe must have been used in literally every radio  and television broadcast until 1960
