Split Screen Video Shows Vintage New York Side By Side With Modern Day

This fantastic video from The New Yorker combines old footage of New York City taken over the past 80 years and combines it with the modern day counterpart, side by side on a split screen. Most of the footage was captured by vehicle, so you can dynamically compare both eras with ease. In its nearly 9-minutes, the video travels all around Manhattan, as well as parts of Brooklyn and Queens, and most of the Lower Manhattan bridges as well.

A split-screen tour of the same streets in New York City, from the nineteen-thirties and today.
