Stephanie Barkley is multi-talented. Whether it’s set design, fine arts, or comedy, this renaissance woman is sure to be in the thick of something creative. She makes humorous vines in her spare time. You may have seen some of them as Stephanie’s got over 118,000 Vine followers. Trying to curate a selection of her Vines for this article was almost impossible because so many of them are so good! Luckily, Vines are only six seconds long, so if you give Stephanie just two minutes of your time, she’ll practically give you the world! Take a look at some of the hysterical shorts Stephanie’s created that would Valerie Harper and Carol Burnett beaming with joy.

Take a trip back in time through the streets of old New York in 1939. This 16mm film show major spots such as the Statue of Liberty, The Hudson River, Chelsea Piers, Rockefeller Center, The Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, and more. Combined with the sound of the swing era, the clip gives an entertaining and vivid impression of the atmosphere in the Big Apple.
In my wildest dreams, I’d love to be able to go back in time and live and entire month in each decade of the 20th century in New York City. Of course, since this is my fantasy, I’d also have enough money to get around the city and do as I please. What was New York City like in 1939? I’d guess that, for the most part, it was a lot like New York of today. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to visit old Penn Station? Wouldn’t it be great to catch a ballgame at The Polo Grounds or Ebbets Field? Or to grab a drink at Toot Shor’s? We can’t go back in time (yet), but luckily we can watch this wonderful footage. Take a look! The credits are after the jump. Read More
