Revised First Edition, originally released in 1942. Updated footage was added for this revised edition.
Educational public relations newsreel promoting New York City during the early 1950's. This film shows the major highlights one might have seen on a visit to New York City. Of course, arrival and departure from the Big Apple was by steam and electric trains, several of which are seen in this film.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York...
The New York Central Railroad (reporting mark NYC), known simply as the New York Central in its publicity, was a railroad operating in the Northeastern United States. Headquartered in New York, the railroad served most of the Northeast, including extensive trackage in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Massachusetts, plus additional trackage in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The railroad primarily connected greater New York and Boston in the east with Chicago and St.Louis in the midwest along with the intermediate cities of Albany, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Detroit. The NYC's Grand Central Terminal in New York City is one of its best known extant landmarks. .
