We're exploring what New York City was like in the 1970s.

What do the Bee Gees, waterbeds, and pet rocks all have in common?  How about platform shoes, The Hustle, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show?  They were all popular in the 1970s. 

On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring New York City in the '70s -- the photography, the music, and the fashion.  But it wasn’t all disco and bell bottoms –  the city experienced rampant crime and was on the brink of financial disaster in the '70s.  We'll explore that side of 1970s NYC as well.
