[WATCH] Vintage Tourism Board Film Shows New York City Highlights and Hotspots of the 1940s

Take a trip back to 1940s New York City in this incredible vintage film created to promote New York City tourism by showing off some of the City's most magnificent sites of the era.

Highlights include the newly build Empire State Build, the New York Public Library, Washington Square Park, Central Park (with cars all around!), the American Museum of Natural History, and tons of street scenes and aerial shots.

The short 7-minute film is well-worth the watch if you want to see what life was like in New York City in the 1940s.
