For those of us who grew up in 70s Brooklyn, the New York City depicted in The Warriors wasn't that far-fetched. Sure, there weren't marauding gangs dressed as baseball players or mimes (as far as we know) but the 1979 cult classic didn't need to rely on movie magic to create the post-apocalyptic look of a lot of the Big Apple back then.
Fast-forward to 2015. Coney Island looks very different now, but the love for The Warriors has only gotten stronger. Rolling Stone joined most of the cast members that made up the gang, as they reunited on the Q Train on September 13th to take one last ride home together, where hundreds waited at a fan-organized event.
