Incredible Black and White Photos Show the Wild 1970s Party Scene in Nightclubs Across New York

Photographer Meryl Meisler has released an exhilarating exhibition of snaps giving us a peek into the excitement of the epic era. The talented photographer offers outsiders the opportunity to peer behind the curtain at another world.

New York City in the 1970s has become the stuff of legends. Anyone who was anyone got down and dirty in the city's downtown clubs with drugs, sex and disco the order of the day.

The exclusive Studio 54 disco scene saw outrageous outfits, frisky dancing and illicit fun take centre stage in an era of drama and excitement.

In an interview with Jocks & Nerds magazine, Meryl said: “I absolutely loved the disco scene; the music, the dancing, the mixed crowd and creative energy.”
