Amazing Photographs Capture the Glory Days of Disco in New York City From Between the Late 1970s and Early 1980s

The disco era captured in all its might and glory is a testament from the past of how New York’s nightlife used to look like in the 1970s and early 1980s. Studio 54 and Le Jardin were the hottest places to party in New York and they were regularly frequented by celebrities of all kinds.

Waring Abbott managed to capture the pure essence of the disco era, from its early beginnings and all the way down to its decline in the early 80s.
