Bullet Space, 292 E. 3rd St in Alphabet City, NYC, is a former "squat" building, turned co-op and is the home to a collective of various artists who named the building after the art gallery and community space on the ground floor. In 2002 the city decided to hand over ['sold' for $1 each] this and 10 other neighboring squats to the nonprofit housing group, Urban Homesteading Assistance Board. UHAB then teamed up with the squatter residents to put the work into the building to make it liveable and safe.
In the Fall of 2003, Ali, a singer-songwriter, had already been living in the building several for years with her partner and daughter. At the time, the building had recently gotten electricity throughout, but was still without heat. The residents of Bullet Space have since officially taken ownership of building.
