For the next couple of months, in collaboration with the upcoming film A Most Violent Year, we are publishing a culture site about New York City in 1981. From the East Village to Esplanade, we’ll tell some of the stories that shaped the year, and add in some pop culture to the mix for the fun of it. So check it out here and enjoy, there’ll be new stuff up daily.

This past Wednesday we co-hosted a party at Le Baron with Selectism for Jonathan Leder’s new film Promiscuities, starring Amy Hood. As one would expect with a sexy film, the crowd that gathered at the downtown club was nothing short of stunning.

Last night, our intrepid photographer Christos Katsiaouni headed down to No Romance Galleries in TriBeCa to check out the opening of “Never Too Young,” a group show featuring works by Harry Mcnally, Mike Krim, Osvaldo Chance Jimenez and PJ Monte. Here is the scene that he encountered.
