Meet The Present-Day Punks of New York

In anticipation of the Met Costume Institute's punk-themed "Chaos to Couture" exhibit and gala, this week's New York Magazine examines the current state of the movement: Nitsuh Abebe asks what does punk mean now? (And what did it mean then?) Carrie Brownstein shares her 23 essential albums. And we polled 100 self-identified punks on the streets of New York about punk as a lifestyle, cultural co-opting, and much more. Here, we present 34 images of those interviewed.
