Product Description

In 1975, the city of New York had roughly 85,000 robberies. "Welcome to Fear City: A Survival Guide for Visitors to the City of New York (1975)" was published by the Council for Public Safety—police, firefighters and other unions. New York City was in dire financial straits and Mayor Abraham Beame had proposed heavy cuts in municipal services. The pamphlet—with a skull on the cover—was aimed to discourage tourists from visiting New York City. The pamphlet had received such negative publicity that it was not distributed, although the unions distributed other pamphlets to get their message out. Negative nicknames for New York City during this economic crisis period included “Default City,” “Fear City” (by the police and fire unions), “Stink City” (sanitation unions), and “Stupid City” (teachers unions). This was the Rotten Apple back in the day, folks, and you either hated it, or absolutely loved it. We memorialize this once scaremongering pamphlet with our exclusive, Fear City t-shirt set. Utilizing artwork and text from the original pamphlet, this premium, throwback tee features front and back graphics in a distressed aesthetic for a truly vintage look and feel and comes complete with a collectible 4" x 6" Fear City postcard and 4" die cut sticker.

    Great shirt! Very soft material, not too thin and not too thick and the graphic is very crisp and clean. Shipping was fast and the customer service was great!

    I'm very happy with the quality and fit of the Fear City shirt. It's a must have!

  3. Awesome shirts, with awesome service! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Feb 2021

    I ordered 2 shirts ('Fear City' and 'Fort Apache') and they're both awesome!

    The quality of the shirt is good and the sizing is exactly what you'd expect.

    There was some sort of issue with my shipping address (my fault) and the owner Koe called me right away to sort it out.

    I buy a lot of shirts online, but I've never had service this good before.

    If you order here you won't be disappointed. And if you are, that's on you.
