Summary

An 1896 street view of New York shows a metropolis teeming with activity. The camera centers on two police officers directing pedestrians before a constant flow of trolleys (three go by in forty seconds). In the background, we see horse-drawn buggies and buildings under construction. A newsboy wanders into the foreground of the shot and looks at the camera. Life goes on.
