Publisher Comments:

Praise for Captured by Clayton Patterson:

 

“More than the indispensable reference and definitive work it is sure to become, this massive labor of love is also an elegy for a Lower East Side and an East Village that is fast disappearing.”—The Villager

 

“Inspiring, lively, funny and full of unexpected little touches and absolutely unique New York characters.”—New York Press

 

[Captured] fleshes out a variegated, stormy, indelible portrait of a neighborhood that through its cornucopic artistic production stands in the throes of spontaneous beauty.”—Evergreen Review

 

Current and former residents of the neighborhood explore the social, political, and human landscape of one of America’s most storied bohemias. In over fifty chapters, diverse authors cover topics ranging from the early settlement houses and sweatshops to squatters, rioters, artists, activists, and organizers. Movements of Resistance is jam-packed with fascinating first-person accounts of the battles, triumphs, failures, and lives of a neighborhood that is rapidly being lost to gentrification.
