Discusses the various transportation routes leading into New York City in the early 1940's, as well as details of future transportation and infrastructure planning. Roads, railways, subways, trolleys and waterways are examined. Also many scenes of downtown New York.

The film has a copyright notice from 1941 however there are a number of scenes which are clearly filmed in 1946 or later (such as Air Force jets, V2 launch at New Mexico, trolleys that weren't in service in 1941 and cars that date from the second half of the 1940's). Most likely scenario is the film was updated in the late 1940's for a second release. .
