The Dawn of Disco and Other Memories Clifton nightlife explodes in the 1970s
By Jack De Vries
 
It was the decade of the bad haircut.

Face it. If you grew up in the 1970s, there’s a high school yearbook picture you’d like to burn, and it’s yours.

It was a time like no other. The 1970s began with the idealistic promises of the 1960s and ended with the start of the “greed is good” 1980s.

In the 1970s, Richard Nixon halted the Vietnam War, declared he was “not a crook,” and flew away on a helicopter from the White House after he proving that he was. After Nixon, Gerald Ford pardoned his old boss, fell down a lot, plunked people with golf balls, and bumbled out of Washington as the decade ended.

In local pro sports, Dr. J, wearing a beach ball-size afro, kissed the sky for the then New York Nets. The Knicks won a championship in 1973 and wouldn’t make the NBA finals again for another 20 years. The New York Giants and Jets stayed far away from the Super Bowl, the Mets almost won the World Series in 1973, and the Yankees showed them how it was done in 1977-78.
