Watch NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell

New York City was a different place in 1977. The whole word has changed, but the city during that time had a very particular chaotic rhythm to it: “Punk, disco, hip hop, the blackout, Son of Sam, Tony Manero, CBGB, Studio 54, Max’s Kansas City, Show World, Paradise Garage, cocaine, polyester and leather” [via Dangerous Minds].  This 2007 TV documentary reflects that time and place with great authenticity by including some of the real players of the time.

The full movie is here on Youtube in its entirety – so full-screen this, sit back and remember the days.
