Kevin’s Video of the Week: Think Your Commute Is Rough?!

Kevin’s Video of the Week: Think Your Commute Is Rough?!

Kevin: What’s the traffic like where you live?

Here’s a look at some rare footage of what it was like driving around in New York City in 1928.


Note: This clip was from the 1928 silent film Speedy, which starred comedian Harold Lloyd. You’ll spot some old transportation finds like the 23-foot traffic towers that once graced 5th Avenue across the street from one of the original cast iron subway entrances. Of course, there are the double decker public buses, street cars, and elevated trains in Manhattan. Source: Untapped Cities.
