A sad reminder of what disaster does and the 2nd and 3rd order effects how some people will throw fuel on the fire...nice contrast between the 1965 and the 1977 event.

Very good documentary with lots of original footage.
It's not deep, but it does well at painting a picture of New York at that time and how it came to a climax one night.
The description (Library Journal) provided above is accurate.
