The People Who Defined NYC in the ’70s and ’80s

T Magazine recently gathered together some of the prominent musicians, writers, artists and others who gave rise to New York City’s legendary cultural scene in the 1970s and ’80s. Among the 28 faces are composer Philip Glass, model Iman, writer Fran Lebowitz and artist Chuck Close. While it was a time for joyful reflection of an exciting time in history, it was clear the decades had taken their toll—many artists who should have been in attendance sadly succumbed to AIDS. View the portrait of all 28 legends in T Magazine’s “They Made New York.”
