The 1980s was more than just a time of big hair, pop music and questionable clothing choices.
In New York City, it was a decade where the Mets won a World Series title, the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall riots were commemorated and CBGB was one of the coolest places to be.
Check out photos of life in the city in the 1980s.
