Care to visit 1970s NYC this summer? Summer Movie Series at Mid-Manhattan Library

This summer take a journey back to New York City in the ’70s as the Mid-Manhattan Library revisits the gritty streets of 1970s New York City on Film. Starting this Wednesday, June 5 at 7:00pm, cruise through Times Square in platform boots with mood, attitude, and fashion as they present the blaxploitation classic Shaft. The ’70s retrospect continues all summer long and ends on August 21 with a subway ride through gang territory from the South Bronx to Coney Island in 1979’s The Warriors.
