VIDEO: Driving around 1928 New York City

I don’t know how I found this video, but it is pretty fascinating, especially if you have spent time in New York City. It looks like pieces of silent movies slapped together. The film shows various modes of public transport are hooned around the island of Manhattan. As far as I know this could one of earliest car chases (?) ever filmed, and they did a great job even by today’s movie standards.

For those of you familiar with Manhattan, notice the elevated trains (currently only on outerboros and parts of northern Manhattan (MetroNorth Railroad), the brides, and traffic in Washington Square Park?

If you can positively identify any of cars used in the movie you’ll get the “Honorary Hoon of the Day Badge!”
