The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space is located on Avenue C, between East 9th and 10th Avenues. The Museum serves as an archive, documenting the history of activism in the Lower East Side, East Village, and Alphabet City. Through its exhibitions, community workshops, and guided tours of the neighborhood, the Museum preserves the history of grassroots activism and promotes environmentally-sound, community-based urban ecologies. The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space celebrates local activists who transformed abandoned buildings and vacant lots into vibrant community spaces and gardens. Many of the neighborhoods’ innovative, environmentally sustainable concepts have spread to other parts of New York City, and the rest of the world.
