New York City in the 70s was the setting for Taxi Driver, Annie Hall, and Saturday Night Fever, the nightmare playground for Son of Sam and The Warriors, the proving grounds for graffiti, punk, hip-hop, and all manner of other public spectacle. New York Calling is a collection of original essays reminding us what’s changed in New York since the 1970s — and what’s been lost along the way. Marshall Berman and Brian Berger, editors of the book, speak with contributors John Strausbaugh, Joseph Anastasio, and Tom Robbins. This forum was presented by the Gotham Center for NYC History.
