    This site aims to recreate the soundscape of New York in the early twentieth century. Contemporary newsreel footage, with the live sound foregrounded, provides a fascinating perspective on a defining aspect of the urban experience during the Jazz Age. The bulk of the clips are taken from the 1920s but the time span runs between 1900 - 1932. Website navigation is via a beautifully designed map of New York city and the surrounding areas. The newsreel footage (mainly Fox Movietone) and sounds are enhanced by the presence of noise pollution complaints (some with documentation) from the time, taken from the Municipal Archives of New York, ranging from printing plants in Brooklyn to barking dogs in Queens.
