    So sad. I didn't live in any of those areas, but I do remember the city in the late 70's and 80's and it was a whole different world from how it is now.

    My knowledge is confined to the Bronx and Manhattan but the city is a totally different place than it was even 14-16 years ago. Even during the Dinkins years, tourists only felt safe in the financial district, midtown around Grand Central and the Upper East below 86th street. It remember my dad having his car broken into 5 times in less than 3 years. It is frightening to think how close the country's greatest city came to total collapse.

    My first visit to NYC was Labor Day weekend 1981. Some friends and I just ended up there after leaving a party in WMass. The approaching highway to NYC was littered with abandoned, burned out vehicles. WE all got a bit nervous about what we were driving into despite it being about 6:00 am Sunday morning.

    Once we got into the city, it was ok, but the outskirts.

    It's a lot better now, thank God.

    Undeniably, the photos are real, but I would like to point out in the narrative that Brownsville is not in the South Bronx, it's in Brooklyn, where Mike Tyson is from.

    When trying to make a huge point or statement it bothers me that the facts aren't straight.

    "Luck" has very little to do with the difference in NYC between then and now.
    Thanks for the memories, George. You made the Yankees what they are today... Champions!

    His anti-crime tactics, combined with an improving economy and the end of the crack epidemic put the city where it is today.

    How exactly did they end of the crack epidemic? Just asking.
    My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay.

    There are many theories, some say better policing, some say the inner-city communities finally started rejecting the drug culture and others contend that the market stabilized and drug dealers established boundaries and the related violence stopped.

    The movie American Gangster isn't about crack in the 80s but it does a good job showing what happens to a community once it gets flooded with cheap, pure narcotics.
