Eight days ago I went Port Morris to shoot some images. While I was there I decided to check out a building that I had noticed many times. Its on the South edge of Mott Haven along the Bruckner Expressway on 135 St. After speaking to Rafael Bueno the Executive director of the Cherry Tree Association, I found out the the building was the Casa Del Sol a community center which had started as a squat 20 years ago. Rafael informed me that they had just lost their eviction court case brought against them by ACORN but that they weren't worried. The light was just about gone and so I held off on posting till I could return. Little did I know that they would be evicted the very next day and a mysterious fire started. I'll go back tommorrow and check it out.
