Last year, MOMA(The Museum of Modern Art) screened a nine-minute short film that was filmed in 1911 near New York City. This film (which touched on the city's daily life) produced only three years before the outbreak of World War I, was made by a team of cameramen with the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern, who were sent around the world to make pictures of well-known places. 

In 1911, film images of New York City were restored by MOMA on the basis of the original nitrate print of the film, and be added foley effects.

But there seem to be bad reviews, so If you want to see the original video, watch this one.

This film was revived on the screen, with music by Ben Model.
