Join us on YouTube Live for a free virtual book talk on YouTube Live with Andrew Strombeck, author of DIY on the Lower East Side: Books, Buildings, and Art after the 1975 Fiscal Crisis, in conversation with the Tenement Museum’s Retail Marketing Associate, Arabella Luna Friedland.
Strombeck tells the legacy of one neighborhood in particular, the Lower East Side, where the crisis and its cultural aftermath centralized gentrification in a neighborhood that was originally working class, reworking the foundation of the arts and activism in crisis in a way inherent to New York City.
