Gimme Shelter

Tenement buildings have figured prominently in the work of East Village artist Mac McGill. During the 1980s and ’90s, the buildings he drew were formerly abandoned, home to self-sufficient DIY squatters who renovated them and brought them back to life.

“Virus Building,” by Mac McGill.
