‘Whose Streets? Our Streets!: New York City, 1980-2000’ at Bronx Documentary Center, New York

Michael Kamber, Bronx, 1988: “Tenants and supporters demonstrate and barricade against eviction by New York City marshals on Cypress Avenue in the South Bronx. The tenants, mostly low income New Yorkers and artists, took over the abandoned building and invested tens of thousands of dollars and several years of their labor, replacing the roof, boiler and other building infrastructure. Despite this, the city sold the building to a developer who eventually evicted the families.”
