‘Not For Sale’ — The Chinatown Arts Brigade is Taking on Gentrification

From the Indypendent:

Chinatown Art Brigade

“On Friday night, roughly 100 people gathered outside the Hester Street Playground at the bustling intersection of Chrystie and Grand Streets in the heart of Chinatown. Across the street, images of anti-gentrification agitprop were projected on the side of a five-story tenement building that loomed above the crowd.

“We’re using this as a way to reach out to Chinatown tenants and people living in very precarious situations,” said Betty Yu, co-founder of the Chinatown Art Brigade(CAB). “We chose this very consciously as a place where tenants hang out on a Friday night when the work week is over.”
