Two Videos 40 Years Apart of Roosevelt Island

These two videos of Roosevelt Island show differing views of or from the same island, Roosevelt Island. The first in 2006 from two teenagers and their comments (occasionally off color) and the second from 1966. Two vastly different videos.

This video is for the most part all at Southpoint and a bit at Lighthouse Park as well as various water views facing out from the island.

1966 Video Documentary of Welfare Island.

1966 Video Documentary of Welfare Island. “This short documentary, filmed in 1966, shows the island as it was. Much of the southern part of the island remains in this terrible condition.” It appears to be a non-professional video and quite grainy and the sound has not held up. But it is interesting to see video of the old structures at least for those pictures which are in focus.
