PLOT: Clayton Patterson interviewed by Suzannah B. Troy on Mayor Bloomberg and his impact on New York. This interview is scathing he covers it all including the lack of cheap rent in relation to the art world. Clayton is one of the most significant key figures in documenting the Lower East Side including video footage of The Tompkins Square Riots that would rock New York City to the roots.
Clayton Patterson filmed key video footage of the riots at Tompkins Square Park that would impact many peoples live and change policing.
One day later: The Nazi robbed the rich and poor including ripping out gold teeth and many people spoke up and took the slow crowded trains to torture and death if they were not hung on the spot.
I understand your point and I make the same point about changing the laws in Mayor Bloomberg King of New York in my first youtube. I am glad Clayton refers us to the tenants of 47 East 3rd Street and urge people to help if they can. Thanks for your comment.
