About El Museo de Los Sures:
For over 40 years, Southside United HDFC (Los Sures) has witnessed dynamic changes in South Williamsburg. As the area undergoes gentrification and demand for housing rises, rent costs have increased significantly- more than doubling in the past few years alone. Although many long-term residents have been displaced, others continue to proudly form part of this thriving neighborhood.
To preserve the history of the neighborhood's residents, Los Sures partnered with Cornell University and Churches United for Fair Housing to create El Museo de Los Sures. "This museum will ensure that we do not forget South Williamsburg's roots or those who have fought for the rights of established residents," said former Los Sures Executive Director Ramon Peguero.
