“I was 24 and nothing—hell or high water—was going to keep me away from that!

The mission for the concert was to build a children’s playground in Central Park.

It would be the third free concert to benefit the park.

Elton John performed in 1980 and Simon & Garfunkel reunited in 1981.

That night in July in 1983, I would say Central Park was the most exciting place in the world to be.” Thirty years later, that is how Dennis Rosenblatt recalls Diana Ross’s free concert in New York’s Central Park.

Today he is the director behind “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” but at the time he served as the associate director for the concert that would go down in entertainment history.

While Rosenblatt and the 450,000 people who attended Ross’ show were in heaven, New York was in hell.

In 1983, unemployment was at an all-time high in the city; a record that stood until 2009.

A staggering 1,622 homicides went on record, compared to 419 in 2012, and landlords were evicting people with AIDS.

Life has always been rough in the city; filled with social and economical diversity, and all of these obstacles manifested inside Central Park on July 21, 1983 when Diana Ross took the stage. It was the ninth day of 90-degree weather in the past 10 days, but that did not stop New Yorkers and others around the world from coming to the park.
