Punk shrines in the Village

Punk earned its place in fashion's history book this week, when the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute opened "Punk: Chaos to Couture." The exhibit looks at how the rip-it-up-and- start-again sartorial spirit of Johnny Rotten and Joey Ramone has influenced style ever since punk came screaming onto the music scene in the 1970s. New York was one of punk's epicenters, and even as gentrification has run amok in the city, a few places keep the memory alive. -- Maura Johnston, Special to Newsday
