Description

In November 2008, approximately three-dozen Chinese workers were evicted from their cramped living quarters in Manhattan's Chinatown. They were living in cubicles, cooking on hot plates and sharing one bathroom. Once evacuated, the tenants were sent to vastly improved temporary living quarters, however, the small community fought for a year to return to their cramped home in Chinatown.
