Everywhere you look in New York City, there's evidence of its vast and important history

Between hundred-year-old buildings and establishments that have been imperative to the city's culture, it's basically unavoidable. 

In fact, these landmarks are so prevalent that more often than not, you might not even know you're staring history in the face. 

Take, for example, the Bronx-Manhattan High Bridge. Did you know that it's the oldest bridge in the entire city, and was built back in 1848?

Vimeo user Lyndon Lorenz created this super rad video that overlays contemporary video clips with vintage photography of the bridge throughout various points in history. 

The video lets us see the many changes that the bridge has gone through over the years, in contrast with what it is today.

Needless to say, it's pretty fascinating to see.
