New York, United States of America (USA).
Several good shots of slums on New York's East Side and of slum buildings being demolished. Aerial shots of Manhattan as commentator talks of the rebuilding programme taking place there. Brief shot of men working on the construction of a new house. Commentator mentions the Red Hook Community. More aerial shots of new housing areas, then we see new blocks of flats put up by the Government-backed Williamsberg (Williamsburg?) Scheme in Brooklyn.
