1960, NYC housing protest in the Yorkville neighborhood (upper East Side.)
During the early spring of 1959, housing activists from across New York City began to gather at the 23rd Street YMCA to share stories and tactics from tenant and community struggles against urban renewal projects in the city.

Jane Benedict, a former labor organizer, founded the Yorkville Save Our Homes coalition to oppose the construction of luxury condos in her neighborhood. (source)
