80 Blocks From Tiffany’s
Today we have a film that was known as the real life version of films like The Warriors and The Education Of Sonny Carson. 80 Blocks from Tiffany’s was a documentary released in 1979 that showed how gangs like The Savage Skulls and The Savage Nomads were bred due to the social challenges facing New York’s urban population in the 60’s and 70’s and set the tone for Hip Hop, Graffiti and Break Dancing to thrive. The film was made for NBC but was too controversial to be aired. You can still find it on YouTube if you’d like to witness history.
