I've only seen videos for these two cities. I'll share more if I find any.

Except for the extreme smog that developed during the 40s and persisted for decades, it might have been.

A good many US cities were livelier 70 years ago. The US wrecked the urban cores of many of its cities in the latter half of the 20th century.

Livelier and livable are not the same.

Many US cities were frankly unlivable due to the extreme pollution and poor living conditions in the early 20th century into the late 20th century.

New York and Pittsburgh are examples of cities that have majorly cleaned up and are now very livable cities.

Also, a majority of American cities were still sticks 70 years ago.

A lot of people get stuck on nostalgia trips and always think cities were better in the past, I'm sure people will look at 2019 50 years from now and say ahh, the good ole days.
Of course traits and characteristics are missed, but I think American cities are doing fairly well today in revitalization, energy and learning from the mistakes of the 20th century.
