[WATCH] This Vintage News Reel Shows Reporter's Funny Tour of 1983 Manhattan's Streets

It's 1983: Ed Koch is mayor, everybody's favorite movie is “Return of the Jedi,” and New York City's going through a street sign crisis. Think it’s hard to get around the city now? In the 1980s, street signs were an absolute mess. Missing signs, wrong signs, paper signs, blacked-out signs -- you name it. Some even blamed cops for defacing signs! Take a hilarious street-sign tour of Manhattan on September 5, 1983, with Eyewitness News legend Milton Lewis.
