yeah, if you look past the crime and the decay, new york certainly did have an unsusual culture back then.

i doubt you would have enjoyed here for a very long period in the seventies. it was hellish....fascinating but hellish. glad i got a chace to experience it for a bit as a kid and teenager. i miss the energy - and thats about it.

bought my first fake id in 1988 in times square....back when you could do that.

god i'm old :(

Golden Age? No. 1920's were. Anyone denying that needs to open their eyes. New York was at the top of her game.



I believe things like these come in stages. After the twenties, people began saying it was the demise of the city's culture. Well, then the 60's and 70's came along, and there was an explosion of creativity. Well, that died down, but I believe we are on the eve of the next explosion. Just look at the buildings were putting up!

I also think London is becoming a center of creativity once again, after being dormant for quite sometime. (1960's)
