  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    New York, United States of America.

    Various shots of slum housing being demolished in New York. Mayor La Guardia sits in a bulldozer and pulls a lever to start off the demolition project that will make way for new and better homes. Flimsy, rotten walls of houses are pushed and pulled down by men with ropes. A crowd of people watch as a large concrete ball on a chain is swung around to knock down a building - it looks like a church.
