New York’s ‘Roaring Twenties’ come alive with interactive audio map

The term “Roaring Twenties” is used to describe a specific period of economic growth, but it’s an apt description for another reason — the decade was very noisy. Created by a group at the University of Southern California, “The Roaring Twenties” is an interactive site that aims to show this by letting you actually experience those sounds. Focusing specifically on New York City, the site lets you explore sound in three different ways: by location via a map, by date through a timeline, and by the type of sound produced thanks to a handy list. You can hear everything from the clang of a Chinese New Year celebration to the construction sounds of a subway tunnel expansion
