49th street



49th street is a street in the times square neighborhood of downtown new york. it has now been cleaned up, but back in the 1970s, it was quite a messed up neighborhood. the corner of 49th street and 8th avenue was known for its many p-rn theaters, which showed the iconic 1972 movie deep throat, among others.
i have a style of outfits which i call “cbgbs crossed with 49th street.” it’s basically blondie-punk-style outfits but with the tops a little tighter or cut a little lower, and the skirts are quite short. some of the great combinations they include are silver platform shoes and fishnet ponchos with long lace-and-satin tank tops and punk rock dog collars and spiked cuffs. it’s my tribute to the “i don’t give a f-ck and i express my s-xuality however i want to” spirit of that era. it does not = “looking like a p-rn star” (that’d be one conservative p-rn star!). it = being s-xy on my own terms.
when i use “49th street” as an adjective, i mean “bad–ss, hardcore, rebellious, defiant”.
today, i wore a black pin-striped mini-skirt, a black asymmetric top with see-thru slit sleeves, fishnets with silver platforms, and a leather collar with chains. that was a pure 49th street look.

me- “i like to dress like i’m from 1970s nyc sometimes”
moron- “oh, you mean like 5th ave with all the designers and stuff?”
me- “no, i mean like 49th street, that whole punk and p-rn explosion”
moron- -runs-

g-d, i love that song…so raw, so 49th street.
