Considered the granddaddy of New York sex books, Josh Alan Friedman's Tales of Times Square remains the definitive account of Times Square’s inglorious era. A mecca of cheap thrills, ghetto entertainment and 25-cent fulfillment for our sexually bankrupt masses. In the decades before Disney helped castrate its urban ecosystem, Broadway and 42nd Street surpassed Sodom and Gomorrah. Bulldozed and rebuilt into lockstep with corporate America, Times Square now evokes nostalgia for the lost soul of New York.
Tales of Times Square was originally published by Delacorte Press in 1986. It has remained in print through numerous editions. This new podcast, Tales of Times Square: The Tapes is derived from scratch tapes made during Josh’s years embedded in depravity.
