If you like this, I strongly suggest my most recent New York documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXM-g.... I spent a year creating the recent film.

As for the video above, New York Now and Then explores 28 before and after photos spanning 140 years, showing how the short film was made. New York Now and Then is all about remembering the photographer, but also is about entertaining the viewer with photos showing New York then and now, or as you may notice often they are now and then.

Be sure to also watch the short film:

Please let me know if I need to add a name or organization.

Apologies to James W. Blake as I did not properly credit him for the lyrics of Sidewalks of New York, even though you don't hear the lyrics in the video.
