In Living Color: Want to Go on a Glorious Video Tour of Manhattan in 1949?

Subscribe to spoiled NYC's official newsletter, The Stoop, for the best news, eats, drinks, places to go, and things to do.

Check out the incredible video below entitled, "Mighty Manhattan, New York's Wonder City."

It's a beautiful, historic tour of New York City in technicolor, and quite the informative 15 minutes.

For example, did you know that Manhattan's foundation is made of solid rock, which allows it to support the countless number of skyscrapers that define its iconic skyline?

The video also takes us to the Bowery, Chinatown, Herald Square, Times Square, as well as landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, City Hall, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and the New York Public Library.

Fittingly, it's enhanced with old-fashioned music and gives us a peek into the glorious culture of NYC during the 1940s.

We just can't get enough old-school NYC!
