Between 1969 and 1972, the New York Puerto Rican activist group of the Young Lords Party organized several initiatives, “offensives,” in East Harlem, Manhattan. In this article, Bavaro provides an overview of this understudied social movement, its main actions and ideological directions, while highlighting the interplay between the social space of New York City and the party’s development. It describes a community-based, site-specific militant group that was nonetheless profoundly permeable to contemporary events and issues that were animating the city at large and the nation.
