Vintage Video Shows Trolley Service at Broadway and 17th Street in 1901

This great vintage video showing New York City trolley service on the corner of Broadway and 17th Street in Union Square way back in 1901 was recently restored and uploaded by YouTuber Guy Jones. "Small peek back in time to New York 114 years ago. This is at Broadway and 17th street. Naturalized the speed and added some sound ambience for flavor"

Here is a Google StreetView how the same view looks today:
