Rate this:
During this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, filmmaker Ric Burns documents how the dramatic events that followed the Crash of '29 fueled the greatest financial depression in American history and plunged the city and the nation into economic gloom. In little more than ten years, immense new forces were unleashed in New York, from the Depression itself to the New Deal, which permanently altered the city and the country. Along the way, two of the most remarkable New Yorkers of all time came to the fore: Mayor Fiorello La Guardia and master builder Robert Moses, both of whom sought to create a bold new city of the future. This program examines their careers in detail, as well as the immense public works that transformed the city in the '30s.
