I found and commented this old cold war video. A few, yet to be famous, Hollywood actors play in this educational video about what would happen to a suburb if New York was attacked by nuclear weapons.

Enjoy

The fear was real, perceived or not. One wonders how today's generation would have handled it. Even more PTSD than most already have?:zany:

The fear was very real indeed
Had the occasion to read the targeting list for the US strategic targeting , it got declassified a few years ago
Strategic Air Command Declassifies Nuclear Target List from 1950s

While the first wave of target was high priority military ( including locations in the middle of major cities )
the second and third wave of strikes encompass the total destruction of ALL the infrastructures
toward the end of the list , the targets were simply ...populations
it would make any rescue and recovery near impossible

one can suppose the soviets had an equivalent one
