From the video description:
WBNS television was testing 'high definition' video cameras back in 1998 and 1999. On May 20th, 1999, the station sent several employees to New York City to shoot HD video of the city.
The video includes HD shots of The World Trade Center, Times Square, The Statue of Liberty, and much more as it was back in 1999.
The video has sat in WBNS' large archives until now. This video is dedicated to the people of New York and their history.
I guess I'm someone who is extremely nostalgic for the 1990s, for a huge variety of reasons. To me, the world just felt so much brighter and more optimistic pre-9/11. Of course, back then I didn't fully appreciate it, because never would I have believed that it all could change so fast. You really don't know what you have until it's gone.
I thought it was a video worth sharing.
