In the 1970s we still had local television, not just the local news. Here is WCBS-TV New York (Channel 2) in New York celebrating New York:
And here they are with several short spots celebrating New York and New Jersey!
I have intensely nostalgic feelings watching these videos. I remember them so well. They played constantly on Channel 2, especially late at night. I was so young, both of my parents were still alive, and watching TV was fun! Now I'm not so young, my parents are both gone, and I rarely watch television.
I’m glad to find these treasures on YouTube, especially because most people didn’t have VCRs yet and so much of it was not recorded.
I really miss local New York television, which really doesn’t exist anymore. I wrote more about it here.
