The 800 or so kids from the roof were pushed into a condensed Cook Street where a couple skirmishes broke out between one of the more notably tough New York police precincts and the drunks/anarchists/bystanders from the party.

I didn’t have my camera flash but the photos still look pretty rad. What was I thinking, showing up to a New School event unprepared for a violent encounter with the cops? Now that it’s summer and school’s out, it looks like the anarchists are going to alternate between having benefit shows and being arrested. See all you kids and cops at the next one.
