Doin' Time in Times Square
Nearly a decade after helming Wild Style, the seminal film of the hip-hop movement, director Chuck Ahearn turned his lens on the streets of 1990s-era Times Square and created this unique video journal. A stark contrast to the square we know now, the famous intersection of Manhattan was a haven for drugs, thugs, hookers and porn shops in the early '90s, and Ahearn's cameras captured it all in this fascinating time capsule.
