    The church is St Mary the Virgin on W46 St (6th to 7th) & it is still there.

    I remember it because the narrator is annoying. At 01:45 he says "Chel-see-uh Piers." And only a few years after the Nuremberg Trials, no travelogue should say "the final solution" (03:30).

    The video is excellent.

    I hadn't seen this. Incredible quality of the video. Swap out some clothes and cars and there is little difference in many areas.

    Yes that's the video I saw on TCM. Just noticed at 1:22 how dirty the Brooklyn Bridge was! No power washing back then.

    I hadn't noticed that you put this up already, as I posted about it on NYC in black an white, sorry. Ironically, I used a very handy technique to display YouTube video screenshot on post.

    That oldest footage video was very well put together and detailed. Nice musical accompaniment for the most part.
