From amNY: "Is there anything you miss about [1970s/1980s New York]? Oh sure. I really miss having the bag people on every other block. I miss going to the Theater District and not being able to bring my parents because I thought they couldn’t defend themselves if they were attacked. I miss terribly the squeegee washers on the 59th Street Bridge. I miss the sense of dread going down a street that had no one walking on it. I miss the dogs, and all of them going wherever they wanted to go. I lived on 81st and York at the time, and I used to pick my block based on the aroma in the air."
