Brooklyn LiveWork -- http://www.www.brooklynlivework.org/
In response to the escalating rent crisis in New York City and the events of December 19, 2000, when 60 people and their children were evicted into a cold December night, the Brooklyn LiveWork Coalition has formed to protect the rights of live/work tenants in Brooklyn and beyond. We are an ever-expanding group of neighborhood and housing advocates. We are working artists, small business people, and arts-related entrepreneurs who have revitalized Brooklyn neighborhoods abandoned by industry and neglected by government. We provide new models of economic activity which demand live/work spaces and mixed-use neighborhoods
