Vintage Film Drives You Down Broadway Through Times Square in 1929

This incredible vintage video from nearly a century ago shows the hustle and bustle of the Theater District and Times Square as the camera films from a car driving down Broadway on December 7th, 1929. It was restored and uploaded by YouTuber and historian Guy Jones, who left the original audio attached.

More old footage of the New York City theater district taken with early Movietone sound cameras. This is from December 7, 1929 during the day. Worked on footage and sound a bit. Can't believe this stuff has survived, truly spellbinding!
