Trash and Vaudeville is moving
St. Marks place has been the hub of nyc goth and punk fashion since the 70s, although the past few years have shown a significant change in the area. Once by one the alternative stores have dropped off, being replaced by fast food and japanese restaurants. Perhaps the most recognizable alternative store, 'Trash and Vaudeville', has decided to move locations after 40 years.
Like many other cities, NYC has been a victim of gentrification and the rising real-estate market which seems to price out anything artistic and alternative. Besides the downfall of St Marks, every month we have news of another music venue that has shut down because it just couldn't afford to pay rent. Not to mention the VF store closing after 3 years in business.
As much as we love NYC, it is sad that it is being increasingly less affordable, and losing its artistic character. The artists and alternative kids made the east village a fun place, thereby increasing the real-estate value and then the alternative kids couldn't afford to live there anymore. They got pushed out to brooklyn and queens and jersey, and even some of these parts have become overpriced.
I see a lot of my friends moving away from NYC to more affordable places and each time it makes me contemplate that maybe it's time to move. Maybe it's time to move to detroit and snatch up some cheap property, just like Galapagos art space
But alas NYC is still home.
Much love to the Trash and Vaudeville crew for keeping subculture fashion alive.
