Was New York City in the 1970s and 1980s really as seedy and dangerous as the rest of America was led to believe? On this episode, we continue our exploration into New York City’s recent past, sitting down with Carlos Hiraldo and Claudia Moreno Pisano, both native New Yorkers with powerful memories and opinions about this transitional, turbulent era. Getting underneath the stereotypical media image of crack cocaine, gang violence, and graffiti-covered subways, this conversation provides a local perspective on an important, often misunderstood, time in the history of the city.
