For me, those times weren't fun. I was in my early - mid 20s and when I compare the sheltered way I had to live because of crime, compared to the experience of young people today, I say that they have it better than I did.

The thing is I don't really remember much of the 90's, the decade went sooooooooo fast! Sometimes I sit and wonder where did 15 years of my life go?

Ok well in that case here is my opinion:

Crack was all over, and walking to school was always "crunch crunch crunch" as you stepped on the little glass containers (viles). You would see the crazy people walking around all the time, and sometimes they dragged their kids with them begging for money. The crackbabies were real, and we all knew someone who was a crackbaby.

When you add the destruction over large swaths of the city in the 70s, which we are still rebuilding from, and then the crack epidemic which swept through the city in the late 80s/early 90s, and then the out of control crime wave of the early 90s, it is a surprise that anyone remained in NYC at all. I wonder why the $@!# my family stayed during all this.
