New York City in color in 1939! A wonderful amateur film shot by French visitor Jean Vivier has recently been discovered. Vivier rode down Fifth Avenue on a doubledecker, visited Chinatown, 30 Rock, Harlem, Washington Square, and a lot of places I hope native New Yorkers will point out in the comments. I love when something like this is discovered that helps genealogists see what a certain place and time looked like.
