NYC 1981: A most violent year

I really enjoyed this short, gripping peek into the city circa “Escape From New York”:

An original short documentary featuring stories from one of the most dangerous years on record for New York City.

Featuring Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, performance artist and former Warhol Factory fixture Penny Arcade, actress Johnnie Mae, Harlem street-style legend Dapper Dan, auto body shop owner Nick Rosello, and trucking union rep Wayne Walsh.

It’s featured on a blog dedicated to that blighted period, created by the makers of A Most Violent Year.
