Video: 1920s New York

Filmed in 1921, Manhatta reveals a typical day in Lower Manhattan in the early part of the 20th century. Painter Charles Sheeler and photographer Paul Strand created this silent film to discover the relationship between film and photography, while exploring their love to the City. Just as it is today, the City is amidst endless chaos.

The excerpts interspersed throughout the film are from Walt Whitman. We first spotted this video Urbanophile and the Architects Newspaper.
