NYC’s Downtown Party Scene Is Good Again (Here Are A Few People To Thank)

In cities around the world, downtown isn’t just a geographical destination. It’s an entire vibe that separates preservationists from progressives and squares from subversives, attracting legions of misfits, weirdos, transgressors, and provocateurs who eventually become a community. This is especially true for NYC, where you can map so many of the past century’s youth movements via its downtown party scenes. Here, staying south of 14th street isn't just a preference, it's a statement about your ...
