C-Squat, one of the longest-standing squat houses, has been a part of the fabric of the New York Punk scene since the first squatters set down roots in the 1980s. In the early days, they moved through the burnt out walk-up on ladders. Then they renovated it, setting up a skate ramp, a punk venue, and a permanent homestead on Avenue C.


Now its history and the history of other New York squat houses is preserved in the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS), a living archive located on the ground floor of 155 Avenue C.
