NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell


I was watching this on TV yesterday:

VH1 Rock Docs - NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell:

"This two-part, two-hour documentary tells the story of one of the most astonishing pop culture years in American history. New York City had fallen in decay and chaos. There were not enough jobs, not enough money, not enough police, not enough schools, and not enough social services. There was a city wide black out with major looting, there was a serial killer on the loose, and the Bronx was burning."

Video (clips only): NY77 on Spike TV

Yes, an amazingly evocative doc. Seen it on BBC4 in the UK.

Those clips were awesome!! Such an interesting part of NYC history, the late '70's were. I visit your site daily. Is there a chance that you guys could add mine?? Thanks!
