CC Cinema: Manhattan In 1943 – Where’s The Traffic?

I’ve been watching quite a few of these old New York films from different vintages. Maybe we’ll do a few, one per day. This on was shot in 1943 by Don Kelley. There’s some nice shots of the double-decker buses that ran up and down 5th Avenue, and that Jim Brophy wrote up here.

The lack of traffic is amazing.
