Comment of the Day

"Man, that brought back some memories (some good, some bad). Totally forgot how pay phones were such a big plot point in many movies, and the fact that most people dialing rotary phones in movies always seem to dial 222-1122 (guess it was easier than dialing 999-7797). I really miss Checker cabs, blue buses, phone booths (with phone books) and cute girls in bellbottoms and hiphuggers. I don't miss the LES looking like postwar East Berlin, and the subway being a rathole."?anon [Watch This Supercut of Gritty '60s and '70s New York City]
