Vintage Film Shows Staten Island's South Beach in the Summer of 1948

Over the past few years, YouTuber El Exigente has uploaded a ton of vintage film to his page, including this great one showing South Beach on Staten Island as it was back in 1948, in color.

Another Monday outing for the Albas and Migliaccios. This time, they take the Ferry to Staten Island and explore South Beach, which still has a great boardwalk and beach, but back then it also offered amusements and even a few hotels.
