1944: Greenwich Village, Not Knickerbocker Village

video
from the prelinger archives:
An amateur film made in Manhattan, New York City during World War II, showing a Greenwich Village street art exhibition, a scene from what looks to be Washington Heights, springtime at Coney Island, and Greenwich Village stilled by a snowstorm.

The film was originally silent. I gave it an all Nat King Cole soundtrack
