“I Was There” tells personal stories highlighting a certain moment in history.
In the premiere episode, we talk with Josh Alan Friedman, one of the only writers covering the beat of Times Square for Screw Magazine during the late 1970s and 1980s — a mob run time in New York city’s past where peep shows and Burlesque were the main attractions lining 42nd street.
