The operation to occupy a vacant foreclosed home in Brooklyn on behalf of a homeless family from New York City appears to be a success. The front door of the two-story house on Vermont Street apparently was unlocked when the marchers arrived.
Alfredo Carrasquillo, the father of the homeless family, thanked the marchers for at least temporarily providing them with a home.
“I appreciate every single one of you,” he said. “This is just the beginning; there’s still a lot more work that needs to be done. But I hope that all of you will be here as that work continues.”He then re-entered the home with his wife, Natasha, and two kids. Members of the media were not allowed inside.
