NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell

New York City, 1977 – It was a time when the city had fallen into decay, with too few jobs, money, police, schools, and social services. There was a city wide blackout with major looting, a serial killer on the loose, and the Bronx was burning. And yet out of the chaos emerged one of the most creative times any city has ever encountered.

This period of intense creativity was also marked by crime, violence, and chaos – the NYPD was understaffed, the subways unsafe, and most of the LES was still a junky wasteland. That being said, artists could actually afford the rent back in those days.
