When did the decrepit NYC of old ('70s) start becoming destitute and dangerous?

New York in the '70s was infamous for its grit and crime, but at what point did it start becoming so dirty (graffitied subway cars, bombed-out-looking housing projects, seedy Times Square)? I'm assuming the downfall started in the late '60s?
