Before St. Marks Place became synonymous with cheap sunglasses and offensive T-shirts, it was the epicenter of NYC punk. Trash and Vaudeville is the real deal—it's outfitted Debbie Harry, the Ramones and much of the CBGB crowd—and, though it’s now filled with more tourists than anyone would like, the service remains amiable and attentive. Browse rows of Dr. Martens boots, skinny jeans by Tripp NYC (a steal at $52), studded collars, bondage pants, Manic Panic hair dye and plenty of other things that would surely anger your mom.
