Dubbed Anarchy Row by its occupants, Vee lived alongside fellow unhoused individuals inside a small row of tents just outside Tompkins Square Park in Manhattan’s East Village.She gained media attention alongside encampment leader Johnny Grima on April 6 after a 5-hour-long standoff between the unhoused and the NYPD for failing to take down their makeshift shelter.
