I was browsing through the New York Times website when I stumbled upon their selection of multimedia files. These are so well hidden, it’s a shame.
I looked down the list and one particular entry struck me as interesting. The title is: “Times Square: Then and Now.” It is written and narrated by James Traub of The Times who has written a book on the history of the area.
This is one of those things you listen to and then say, “Oh – that’s why we have the Internet.” It is an excellent use of still photos and great writing, tied together with Macromedia Flash.
