I personally think NYC was well enough off during that era, at least coming into the 90s. The 70s sucked financially, but if it never recovered as the most dominant US city (which wasn’t really challenged then from my understanding), it would have just stayed more low-key and affordable at a large scale. It was a very interesting place and was far more down to earth in the 70s,80s, and 90s. This is my opinion (since I was born there during this time), but honestly how else could it be seen if one ignored the violence?
