And you can see the campaign pamphlet they've put out:
Here's what's inside:
In the mid-1970s, things were considerably rougher in the Big Apple—so much rougher that the Council for Public Safety (police, firefighters and other unions) had plenty of material to publish a scaremongering pamphlet called "Welcome to Fear City: A Survival Guide for Visitors to the City of New York."
If you had plans to visit NYC, you would probably swiftly abandon them after seeing this thing, which featured a skull on the cover. Just like the skull under your pretty face that would surely be slashed should you dare walk the streets after 6 p.m., or leave Midtown, or take the subway ever.
The tips inside included:
Stay off the streets after 6 p.m.
Do not walk — "If you must leave your hotel... summon a taxi by telephone."
Avoid public transportation — "You should never ride the subway for any reason whatsoever."
Remain in Manhattan — "If you remain in midtown areas and restrict your travel to daylight hours, emergency service personnel are best able to provide protection."
