What do the Bee Gees, waterbeds, and pet rocks all have in common?  How about platform shoes, The Hustle, and 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 too.  We'll explore that side of 1970s NYC as well.
