Pete Hamill on The ‘50s. NYC.

The Eisenhower era bragged of the good life for all, a time of abundance and prosperity, but it didn’t touch the Neighborhood. The prosperous were gone to the suburbs; among those who stayed, money was still short. Everywhere in the city, factories were closing.

- Pete Hamill, A Drinking Life, 1994
