Say what you like about the movie, the above still says "New York" a thousand times more than a walk down 14th Street today.

Very true.

"Century's End" is on the BLBC soundtrack + it's an amazing Donald Fagen song. But yeah, the movie bites...

Man, the area was beautiful back then. I remember the Sahara Hotel on 3rd and 14th Street, how much money did I spend following a whore up the shabby stairs? A hell of a lot, that's for sure. It's in my book '100 Whores.'

Wow, what a picture. I remember 14th street in the late 80s/early 90s, when I would take the M14 to high school. I remember it always being kind of seedy, but never dangerous. I think I remember some stores that sold old magazines and books. It was real ungentrified, and filled with pizza shops galore. I would love to see more photos of 14th Street from this era.

Yeah, I was going to mention that song too... Donald Fagen is the coolest cat. Despite Alex's less-than glittering review I kind of want to see this movie again now!
