The sounds of old New York

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 17, 2013

The Roaring Twenties web site is “an interactive exploration of the historical soundscape of New York City”.

The Roaring ‘Twenties website is dedicated to that challenge, attempting to recreate for its listeners not just the sound of the past but also its sonic culture. It offers a sonic time machine; an interactive multimedia environment whereby site visitors can not just hear, but mindfully listen to, the noises of New York City in the late 1920s, a place and time defined by its din.
