The Trash and Vaudeville store in Manhattan, New York.

Trash and Vaudeville is a pair of stores, one on top of the other, located at 4 St. Mark's Place in Manhattan, New York. It is associated with the clothing styles of punk rock and various other counter culture movements.


The store has occupied the same location in St. Mark's Place, a punk rock mecca, since the early 1970s. They are famous for supplying stars like The Ramones and Debbie Harry of Blondie with clothing during the golden age of punk rock in the 1970s and 80s, as they still do today. They also dress wrestlers and movie stars. In 2005, Trash and Vaudeville supplied alternative rock band Hoobastank with some of the clothing they wore on the Family Values Tour that summer.


Trash, the downstairs section of Trash and Vaudeville sells brightly colored and kitschy shoes, accessories and high-end clothing like L.A.M.B. and Miss-Sixty. Vaudeville, the upstairs section of the store, sells punk, rock, goth, shishank, japan 4, and glam-styled clothing for men and women and is the main location for the Tripp NYC label.
