Sometimes it is otherwise

I would really appreciate any recommendations I could get for fiction or nonfiction books or movies that would help me research the following:

New York City any time during the early to mid-70s. I want my characters to be either squatting or renting in a bad neighborhood, and would especially like to find sources that would educate me enough that I wouldn't sound like a total fool writing about it.
Plus anything that would help me research the punk music scene, grindhouse theaters, homeless shelters, plus any interesting events that occurred in that time and area.

Some idea of what Los Angeles would have been like around 1967-1969.

What it was like to attend Woodstock.

Thank you for anything you can think of to steer me in the right direction(s).
