“The film opens as a sightseeing portrait of New York, with lively narration taking the viewer aboard the New York elevated and subway trains. Then the view from the windows becomes slightly abstracted, the voice of the commentator becomes uncertain, and tension arises through curious acted scenes of conflict.” —R. Bruce Elder

“Restoration note: audio and music added by Jacob Burckhardt in the 1970s.” —Bruce Posner
