Storyline

From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation of life during this era of gang rule to date, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over. Written by Anonymous

Fascinating Piece Of History
4 September 2016 | by robstar-72See all my reviews

Even though I am half a world away, I have been fascinated and obsessed by this era of NYC which, before now, has been criminally overlooked in the annals of historical documentation.

Certainly The Warriors had a lot to do with this fascination but I'm also equally compelled by the state of New York at that time, how areas like The Bronx were allowed to become third world slums and resemble a war zone.

I'd love it if the developed a documentary series or even some more fictional shows based on this era. The Get Down did a brilliant job of capturing and telling a story from this period but it was too short and I'd like to see something focused on the gangs and the grittiness.
