That city is riddled with gutterpunks
A gutter punk is a member of the subculture of punk, who lives primarily on the streets, and who sleeps in alleyways, bushes, parks, on roof tops, and in friends' homes. They are typically characterized by wearing the same clothing day in and day out, along with a general "fuck it" attitude, an odor all of their own, unshaven faces, unkept hair, and a fondness for beer. Gutter punks and street punks are closely related, and can often be confused, with the primary differentiating factor being that street punks are able to take showers, if so desired.

A "nomadic" variant of punk, usually in the form of walking
They can take several weeks even months to reach a certain destination, most stay in a city/town for a max of 4 days for recuperation. They tend to be positive about outdoor living and commonly (but not limited to) sleep in the bush, squats, 'out of sight' street corners, barnhouses and makeshift shacks. They are less likely to become trapt in substance abuse than their hitch hiker/non-transient counterparts and often have some knowledge on wilderness survival. Common gear can range from tents to bivouac sacks usually accompanied by a crowbar and a sleeping bag, some have been known to carry axes, wire cutters, combat knives and even screw drivers. There are also rare cases where they would carry shovels, cooking gear, nails and hammers. Scavenging is common among these types, some are known to collect empties and scrap metal as a form of income. Often they are more physically fit than hitch hikers/non-transients and tend to have a fondness for healthy eating. Some are limited to a specific route while others go on a country wide tour.
You know he/she is a real gutter punk when they do nothing but talk about their cross country adventures.
Punk that is poor and is living mostly off garbage and anything else he can do to servive. Reason for the really trash clothes and most tears on his pants. Turned into a fashion in the late 80's... those that used it for fasion are refered to as a poser
no example i could think of
Typically not homeless as opposed to prior thinking. Typically reasonable homes and may have blue collar jobs. Tend to be low to mid 20's. Intelligent, yet, lost in their own journey of their life. As a result GPs, tend to have a story to consciously or unconsciously to prey on their customers, clients or friends. The GP may engage you as a stranger with a story or as a friend with woes of past due bills, late rent, vet bills, lost phones, anything that may allow you to drop them a $20 bill. So noted these GPs can be your peers at work, your family. Some call this historyonic behavior which is similiar but not always money related. Basically, be aware when the story sounds too much like a bad INDIE film (and you are probably right)and are being taken adavantage of as a bleeding heart as they go home to mom and dad's mcmansions and get laughs on us. Save your $$ for those you know that have fallen on bad times and have the courage and strength to get passed and move on as opposed to those who choose to work the system. We have learned of this in New Orleans and now on the East Coast (especailly in New Hope, Pa) along with areas that draw lost souls, artists, and people visiting with lost of money. Being taken advantage of = you have been Gutter Punked.
In a city after a few drinks, 2 well dressed kids approach you and have a story about some guy who helped get their bags to their hotel room and their room key was lost and all of their stuff was gone when they went back that night to change. They approach you as strangers for money with this bleeding story. Kids were wearing cooler clothes than us and we hand over 40$ and took pictures and go to our next destination (feeling good about our good act of nature) and then "Pirate Bar" and the Irish guy laughed and said you've been Gutter Punked after we told him the story. Once home you finally realize GPs exist everywhere. Get a job! Even if you pump gas. Don't GP innocent people. PS- Karma exists and it can kick your ass back into a humble state if you misuse the universe's generous energies for malintent.
dirty stinky punk who lives on the street and drinks alot.
uh sometimes thier like so apauled my society that they just dont want to be a part of it. So sleeping out side, waring the same thing for months and showering once every few years doesn't bother them b/c thier not superficial blah blah blah all that punk mindset stuff.
ok so this gutter punk is setting at a bar and this gay guy comes up and starts buying him drinks. and after a while he's like "hey can I get a blow job?" and the punk beats the crap out of him. so bar tender was like "why did you do that" and the gutter punk was like
"he said something about getting a job"
