In 1976 NYC, even the billboards were allowed to smoke.

(click image for a taste of decadent New York)
Imagine if nanny mayor Michael Bloomberg ran New York City in the 70s. Prim Mary Poppins would've been called in to clean up Times Square, forcing the seven luscious "librarians" at the Library massage parlor (nsfw!) onto the cold, hard streets. And the Marlboro Man would've grabbed his drinking buddy the Winston Man and moved to fucking Paris. (image via flickr)

I think my favorite part of this picture is the theater with the just-pre-Bond Roger Moore film, retitled "Street People" for the US release. Apparently "The Executors" would have been too racy (or too unfamiliar a concept?) for 1976 NYC.

A tall glass of Gordon's gin, a Winston and a movie with Stacy Keach in it never mind that effeminate sweater model Moore.
Look at all the crappy AMC products on the street. Just a few years away from becoming rebar in a condo project.

One of these kinds of ads figured prominently in the climax of the great Michael J. Fox-James Woods flick "The Hard Way". Poor Party Crasher.
