Last week, we brought you some modern summer footage to help you get through the last of this winter. Today, we’ll do the same, only with some vintage footage. In the video above, you see a slice of 1940s Staten Island life. Uploaded by YouTuber, El Exigente, the video’s official description gives some more context:
“Another Monday outing for the Albas and Migliaccios. This time, they take the Ferry to Staten Island and explore South Beach, which still has a great boardwalk and beach, but back then it also offered amusements and even a few hotels.”
It’s cool to see all of the attractions along the South Beach boardwalk. 1948 Staten Island seems like a pretty great place.
