Greenwich Village, Circa 1960 — ANIMAL

Thanks to Animal and Gothamist for this gem.  The beginning seems to be a covert sales pitch for cotton corduroy (“the fabric of ‘Now Generation’”) masquerading as a love poem to the Village and it’s a little jumpy toward the end, but the visuals are fantastic. 

Old New York.  You can hardly find it in NYC today, but it’s on full display here.  Don’t miss it!
