Times Square 1980

I saw this in 1980. I was a teenager from the suburbs and knew it was fake urban romantic grit mostly, but there was an authentic capture of the NY atmosphere. Now everything from late 70s early 80s looks as old as Weimar Berlin.

I loved this too and played the shit out of the soundtrack.

I think it was positioned as the punk/New Wave version of "Saturday Night Fever," which it definitely was not.

Ain't it the truth, OP.
