The Warriors is a 1979 film (with a 2005 home re-release that adds comic book transitions between scenes) that takes place in New York City that is full of peculiar gangs. The setting was, as of the time it was made, clearly intended to be in the near future, with the city having become practically a hellscape of gang violence. The city is more defaced by graffiti than NYC ever really was, and the street gangs are identifiable by their bizarre forms of dress—like pimps, or mimes, or baseball players, or what have you.
And yet, however unrealistically violent and run down the city has become, the setting is not post-apocalyptic. For many people, life goes on seemingly unaffected. There is still a police force; high school students still go to prom. There are no overtly fantastical elements, but the depiction of New York is clearly not realistic either.
Since a question about The Warriors occurred to me today, I wanted to ask here on Meta to see if there was a consensus about whether it was on topic for Science Fiction & Fantasy. It seems to me to be an edge case, and I would like to get others' thoughts.
