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.
El Museo de Los Sures was founded to preserve the history of the neighborhood’s residents.
