New York City, 1971, a balmy August evening: Just seven blocks from her childhood home, a young woman walks into a Park Avenue apartment and into the troubled arms of her first trick. So begins Blue Money—a
mostly true account of life in New York's gritty downtown scene— and an
intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of prostitution in the lawless era before
AIDS and the War on Drugs.
