Flight aggravation aside, there’s nothing like sitting in the window seat on the landing approach to one of the area airports (which all suck, by the way). Seeing the skyline from 3,000-feet, pinpointing your neighborhood and maybe snapping a photo. But what about how passengers in blimps viewed the city during the 1930s, a time when the Empire State Building boasted an ill-fated (and never used) docking station?
This archival (soundless) footage reveals a snippet of that experience. We are led by zeppelin on a fascinating aerial tour of the Manhattan isle and its geographical neighbors.
