13. An old joke....

I heard Keith Richards got a check-up, and they found blood in his alcohol stream. Seriously though, I just read recently that he quit drinking.

2. That was kind of sad.

It seems that New York in the 70ís as an unhappy place.

8. There was tremendous raw artistic creativity at that time.

You see the birth of Rap/Hip Hop in those pics. Punk rock was happening. SNL had just debuted the year before.

This was post-mfg. NYC. The economy was slowly transitioning into real estate, high finance, big law firms, media, etc.

10. Pain often inspires creativity.

Pain can be a Muse.

5. I think the 70's was kind of one of the low points in NYC history.

Job loss, flight to the suburbs, increase in major crimes, just a general deterioration in quality of life. I would not have wanted to live there then.

Cool pics, though. Thanks!
