Well, it's not hard to figure out that this poster represents the "violence is a part of the city" issue, what with the big giant gun incorporated into the New York City skyline, but I what I love most is the detail. From the woman standing in the window, the water tank, the street lamp and so on. An exceptionally designed and executed poster for this early Martin Scorsese classic.
