70's NYC, Hedonistic Paradise. 60's Closest to a revolution in the modern era.

Early 90s: baggy jeans and the best nikes and jordans

New York City for example can be divided by decade. 1950s were a "romantic" time of growth for the city, but it was also the beging of chemical experimentation.  1960 saw the begining of the downward slide in to the 70s where drug abuse and crime were at an all time high. The 70s in NY were ridiculous. The 80 marked an attempt to turn the city around. The NYPD today is much more professional then it was back then. More oversight now. By the late 90s, we started to see positve results.  Today the city in my oppinion is at a high point, if you discount hurricane sandy.

There did seem to be a  "filtered Excellence" of the 50s.  Science Fiction of that time is still a template for today.  But it could not last.  The Vietnam war, I think is what changed things, when young people started to distrust the government and started to question society.  Things were bound to change

Living in earlier times, anything from the middle ages until the 70s, would be super cool right up until your first abscessed tooth and you're off to see the medieval barber (70s dentistry, same thing).

The 1840s. I would be interested in observing how technology was advancing at that point.

Somewhere around 4200BC.  100% of all women were hot naked little liars.

I think the 70s even though Im more of a child of the eighties. The 70s was probably the coolest decade and its been all downhill douchebaggery since.

In the big picture they all have pluses and minuses.  In my life I was all in with a high risk sport in the 2000's, very high highs.  Nothing beats living each day with a fire in your belly, to live with a passion is to truly live.

We are in the first decade in recorded history in which it is the norm for women to go completely bare down below.  How did it take this long? They didn't even trim till the 90's...

If you were a citizen, living in Rome in around 260 BC would be pretty tough to beat.

The 1990's. I liked the music, I liked drinking, I liked turning it around in 95 and getting my life back. I understand this is only personal stuff.... but it was great for me.

I like the way 70s chicks looked. With those high tight bell bottoms and that hair that I don't know how to explain. It was a good decade for blondes

The innocence of the 1950's is so romantic. How can I stay away?

The 80's were the most hideous, just misplaced pockets and zippers everywhere.

granted you have a lot of young people that say the city was better in the 70s, or the 80, or the 90s, or even 10 years ago.  I guess it depends on what you value.  If you don't mind rape, murder and crack than the 70s and 80 were nice, but if you like to walk around streets safely then today is nice...  ............. and by the way NYC is still pretty bizzare
