    Thanks for linking a great video, but I can’t help but wonder how much of this is accurate, after they mentioned that Canal Street actually had a canal on it. I was born in the 50’s, but I KNOW there was no canal there, ever. Still, it was fun seeing the buildings that are still there, and what we’ve lost.
