Picture the Homeless, a Bronx nonprofit that has received at least $240,000 in taxpayer money in the last five years, is giving a crash course on squatting and city-owned buildings are a prime target. Two weeks ago, board member Andres Perez held a teach-in on how to wrest control of vacant apartments. He called it homesteading. The best time to enter a building is in the late hours, he advised a group of about 20, who gathered in front of the half-empty East New York housing complex Arlington Village. You make sure you have your proper tools. You remove the chains and padlock, and then you go in. He then led them through the next steps including filling out a change-of-address form at the post office and setting up utilities. After that, nine out of 10 times the courts will allow you to be able to have control of the property, he said.

Boy if I lived in England and someone squatted on my property I would pay a passle of football hooligans to move them pronto!
Is this about ACORN???
welcome to your brave new world, morons.
Honest people who pay their rent are paying extra to repair the damages done by these invaders.
Sad to say, no one from Picture the Homeless will be prosecuted, provided they have made the proper kickbacks.
