Each week, WFUV's Cityscape explores the people, places and spirit of New York City in new and unique ways. We journey to fascinating places and meet interesting people, but we wouldn’t be able to do that without support from listeners who appreciate this kind of programming. WFUV is a commercial free, member supported, public radio station. We rely on contributions from listeners like you to keep Cityscape going strong. In this episode, we’re here to do what we always do, and that’s bring you great stories and discoveries. But we need you to do your part, and that’s make a financial pledge of support at WFUV.org.

What do the Bee Gees, waterbeds, and pet rocks all have in common? How about platform shoes, The Hustle, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show? They were all popular in the 1970s. On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring New York City in the 70s -- the photography, the music, and the fashion. But it wasn’t all disco and bell bottoms – the city experienced rampant crime and was on the brink of financial disaster in the '70s. We'll explore that side of 1970s NYC as well.

WFUV is hosting a dance party at Webster Hall Saturday night (10/5/13). It’s called the “Rock Your Body Dance Party."  With that in mind, this week’s Cityscape is delving into the history of Webster Hall, as well as looking into the laws governing dance in New York City. We'll also catch up with some Celtic dancers in the city, and hear about a lunch time dance party in the Big Apple.
