New York: Before the City
New Sanderson’s documentary, “new York: Before the City” is a fascinating journey through time, showing the unknown stories and landscapes of New York.

From this documentary, I understood the New York of before to the New York of Now; overpopulated, saturated, busy and and dirty. The New York of before had is richness which is now been forgotten.
