An Earth Day treat

From the holdings of the New York State Archives (series L0102): Pete Seeger, a tireless and effective champion of the clean-up of the Hudson River, performs the song "Garbage." This performance was featured in a New York State Legislative Commission on Solid Waste Management-produced documentary (ca. 1986) entitled The Mountain in the City.

For more great archival footage -- from "I Love New York" commercials to the 1980 Winter Olympics to the opening of the Tappan Zee Bridge -- be sure to check out the New York State Archives YouTube channel.
