    I arrived here in the City in 1979.  When you're sitting in a subway car and can't even see out the windows through all the paint you simply do not feel safe. Especially when it is dark and/or amid non-rush hours and fewer people. The sense that society is in chaos and you are on your own is inescapable, much like the atmosphere of Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.  In fact 1978/79 was when the film "Warriors" came out, and captured exactly all of the contemporary angst of a gang ridden/subway riding NYC.
    But hey, a token was only 50 cents so how could I complain?  Especially when we were all treated to all this free art ;-)
