New York, 1939...

Take a Tour of New York City in 1939 — In Color



New York City, summer of 1939: Lou Gehrig announced his retirement from the Yankees, the city hosted its first World's Fair and, as always, it was really, really hot outside.

Plenty of video footage exists from that summer 74 years ago — in black-and-white.

Romano-Archives, however, uploaded a video of archived footage from that same year, remastered entirely in color. The quality is remarkable — it looks like it was just shot yesterday, but the cars and clothing styles prove otherwise.

Take a look for yourself above.

Did a much better job than ole Turner did when he added color to the classics. That just looked weird.
