In the early 1970s, government disinvestment in New York City, coupled with widespread landlord abandonment, gave rise to squatting, urban homesteading, and other forms of self-help housing. The Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB) grew out of the self-help housing movement. This exhibition features the people who fought to turn vacant or neglected buildings into vibrant co-ops, illuminating the origins of New York City’s affordable housing cooperatives.
