Footage From Club Kid Michael Alig's 1989 Party at McDonalds in NYC
on 12 August 2015
Gothamist discovered footage—filmed by Nelson Sullivan—from club kid Michael Alig's illegal bash held at a Times Square McDonalds in 1989. The hour-long video takes viewers into the party—wandering up and down stairs—as kids sing Elton John, dance, chat and rebel their youthful hearts out. It's a journey through a party (hosted by a man who would become notorious) which is at times dull, at times wild and entirely fascinating.
