Where Punk Rock's Godfathers Encountered Punks

The story goes that in the 1990s Punk journalist Legs McNeil and punk rock godfather Richard Hell were walking through Tompkins Square Park when a group of young punks were sparechanging. The two ignored them, and one of the youngsters yelled something to them about yuppies should go home to the suburbs, to which McNeil replied, referring to Hell, This guy invented you! See, for ex., http://vassifer.blogs.com/alexinnyc/2008/06/all-the-young-punks.html -and- http://www.feeverte.net/archive/messages/16/1307.html. Neither accounts remember the source.
