One of the little subtleties of the show is when they show how progressively dangerous NYC was getting as we headed Into the 70s. A lot of people, especially those about 30 and under don't know about the pre-Guiliani city that served as a backdrop for films like Death Wish and Taxi Driver and how rough a place it could be.
Except you really wouldn't hear them 17 stories up with a set back due to balcony. At least, not like they were driving by.
NYC sucked for about 25 years. From the riots in 68 all the way through Guiliani's touristification of Times Square.
