DEVIL'S REBELS VS. THE 83RD PRECINCT

Photobucket
I have a little obsession with 70's & 80's street gangs. I don't know what it is, but I think it has something to do with the cutoff denim vests. Or maybe it's because toughness back then just looked way tougher than it does now. Either way, I stumbled on a video about gangs in Bushwick from NBC circa '76, which features the Devil's Rebels and the 83rd Precinct (which is one precinct over from mine). I also found a crazy website about NYC gangs that's weird, but worth checking out. ihttp://www.classicnystreetgangs.com Holler at your Savage Nomads and Assassinators.

Have a good week.

  1. this is awesome. i am also obsessed with this culture. What is the reality behind the pop cultural versions like "Warriors" and "Welcome Back kotter?" Fascinating secret history.
