You see these kids walking on the street and think, “Oh, look at that Goth kid,” and then you realize it isn’t a Goth kid, it’s just a “Fashion Goth” who’s dressed as a Goth kid. It’s so disparaging.
- Chloe Sevigny
But walking around the East Village, I just want to cry at the state of it. There are so many fuckin’ jocks everywhere! It’s like a frat house everywhere. There are all those terrible bars like The 13th Step, and it’s just spreading over to A and B. And now, in Williamsburg, you have all these frat guys dressed as alternatives. I don’t know if it’s a sign of the times, but where are the real weirdos? The real outcasts? They’re a vanishing breed here. Maybe New York isn’t drawing that anymore because it’s too expensive.
