New York City in the 1940s was buzzing with activity, with the population of Manhattan almost reaching 2 million inhabitants.
first shot is heading uptown on 8th Avenue. Madison Square Garden is on the left at 1:22​, at 50th Street. 1:38​ is 5th avenue, looking uptown, at 59th street. 4:55​ seems to be a crosstown street, (which?) with many stooped apartment buildings, possibly midtown (Thx dvtvrich)
