Saturday December 8th – Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space Grand Opening!


Happening tomorrow  later on today! (It’s 2 A.M.) The grand opening for the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space needed to be postponed due to Hurricane Sandy, though C-Squat, which houses the museum, was instrumental in helping the neighborhood during the aftermath. Anyway, things are good to go, and here’s the info:

Let’s celebrate the opening of our very own community history museum on Saturday, December 8 — spread the word and come join us at our official launch! RSVP here.
