1st Annual Haunted Housing March to be Held on Halloween 2011

Please join Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito and members of the El Barrio/East Harlem Anti Displacement Task Force on Monday, October 31st for our First Annual Haunted Housing March.  East Harlem residents and community based organizations will be gathering at 3:30 pm to draw attention to the vacant units and abandoned building that exist in our neighborhood. Poverty and homelessness are at record levels in NYC and in East Harlem. We need developers to open these units and buildings to create more affordable housing.

The march will begin at 110th street and Lexington Avenue, proceed south to 106th street and Third Avenue, head back north to 111th street, and then return to our starting place. There will be a reception immediately following the march at The Asthma Center for Excellence (161-169 East 110th Street).

  1. What a creative action to address this most critical issue!!!!
    It so lends itself to street theatre!!
    Who’s gonna dress as the greedy speculators’?
    Who’s gonna come as the Wall Street bankers? Chase? Citibank? bank of America???
    The Warrant of Eviction??? The Marshall??
    The People’s fightback. Be sure to film the whole thing!!!
