I'm always so intrigued when I see how certain locations were in the past.. Maybe it's because I'm an early 90's baby, but it's interesting. First thing I notice is that there are barely any Chinese stores, restaurants, etc. in the Main Street area. Also, the streets haven't changed at all I believe.. Early on in the video, that intersection looks exactly the same as it is today, and still has that "tunnel" over at the top where individuals walk under. It's also cool to see that the 7 train line stops were always populated with men and women back then as well, haha
