- Punks Invade Williamsburg [✜]
"It's like St. Marks in the '70s," said Williamsburg activist Philip DePaolo, referring to the notorious East Village hangout. "It's the bad old days all over again. There's crack and heroin all over the neighborhood."
The Daily News picks up on the crusties/stalled condo squatter meme (Williamsburg is Dead was there first). DN does manage to put an address on the problem - 510 Driggs, at the corner of North 9th, is supposedly a shooting gallery. I think that means the vacant lot next to this building. Can anyone ID actual buildings that are used as squats?
