New Collection: 1960s New York from 35mm

Our new collection brings the social history of 20th century New York to life in vivid and beautiful detail. Transferred to 2K & 4K from 16mm & 35mm film, footage ranges across all areas of the city, including Manhattan and Brooklyn. Clips feature a variety of local life including Latino and African American communities, as well as the subway, department stores and offices, and the 60s art scene with fabulous footage of MoMa exhibitions, fashions shows, photo shoots and parties. Take a look at a sample of the footage here.
