I love this show but this episode was terrible and very unrealistic
22 October 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

I lived in midtown in my late teens and so much of this show resonates for me. But I am sorry this episodes' speech by Abby is just bizarre. The murder rate and major violent crime rate in midtown was skyrocketing at the time and EVERYONE wanted the pushers, crack addicts who would stab people for pocket change, and the prostitution which included trafficking of kids, OUT of there.

They weren't any businesses, including a tavern's "friends and customers" and NO ONE would have applauded anyone who asserted they were. And no one called the homeless at the time "homeless.: They were called "bums" winos" and "bag ladies" and right or wrong everyone with either a business or home in midtown wanted them out too.

I am not making a moral judgement but this artificial and frankly bogus and utterly unrealistic scene in a show that I love because of its gritty realism was way out of place.

I really like the rest of the plot lines, but that part felt like it was written by someone with no familiarity with Manhattan of the period. It was as if someone magically transported some over the top SJW into the middle ages!
