On June 13th, the Manhattan Institute awarded the 13th annual Hayek Book Prize to Deirdre N. McCloskey for her book, Bourgeois Equality: How Ideas, Not Capital or Institutions, Enriched the World.

This is a short film by Don Kelly consisting of footage he shot (on 35mm color film) in the streets of Manhattan in 1943. We see lower Manhattan, Fifth Avenue, Central Park, and Times Square at both night and day, as well as footage he shot on the Third Avenue El when it was still running in Manhattan.

The people, of course, look very different today. It's quite a magical glimpse 70 years back, thanks to the time machine of motion picture film. I recorded this from the program, Classic Arts Showcase.

The LaRouchePAC Policy Committee is happy to announce the inaugural issue of the New York City-centered broadsheet publication, 'The Hamiltonian.'
