Michael Shenker was one of the people at the forefront of the Squatter’s Movement and the push to save the Community Gardens on the Lower East Side, among other things. He was also a musician and a writer. He was also a good friend of my husband’s. He passed away recently and Sunday we’ll honor his memory.
