70's NYC?

Post by War-Lord »

I am tottally obsessed with 70's NYC from the look and feel of the city to everything that happened in this time. Is there any movies, documentaries, books, etc on the subject of 70's NYC? All I got so far is Taxi Driver, and the warriors. Soo any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its been mentioned a few times on the boards already, but go on Youtube and look for Style Wars. It's a doc about 70's/early eighties graffitti in NY and theres a few shots of a tag that appears on the promo pics for the warriors.

Here's 3 more flicks:

Sunshine Boys ('75)
Going in Style ('79)
Wanderers('79)

Here's one thing interesting...

In Godspell, one scene showed the group dancing on the roof of one of the twin towers while it was still under construction.
Also some nice footage around the Hell Gate Br.
