I came across these production stills from The Warriors while searching for the flick's filming locations on scoutingny.com a couple of weeks ago. Shout-out to channel 50 Chicago for broadcasting this movie on weekends during a particularly impressionable portion of my youth. God, it's perfectly ridiculous. Later in life I was pleased to find out that The Warriors posesses a cult following. There are few things more satisfying than finding out there are others who far exceed your own enthusiasm for something that once seemed so obscure. Thanks Internet!
It’s not my best book. I wrote it as a kind of a joke. It took me three weeks to write.

Fans will find this article from The FADER (chronicling the making of The Warriors in the words of those involved in making it) a super-fun read.
