Punk's Not Dead

"'St. Marks used to be, like, a punk block,' Suvy says. 'It used to be overrun with punks. Now it’s like fucking BBQ Chicken and fucking Chipotle, whatever that fucking store is.'" And just like that, we're off on a whirlwind adventure with Suvy, who is not afraid to speak of the wonders of the old St. Marks Place even though he arrived in New York two months ago and is only 18 years old. Says Suvy: "Everyone used to live there, but then the cops came and bulldozed it, and now it's pretty much just a cop hot spot." Holy crap this article rules. [NYM]
