"Squatterism at High Noon" is a creative non-fiction essay by Eric Norcross, in which he reflects on his two months living as a squatter at 12 Warren Street, in lower Manhattan. 12 Warren was an old industrial building, which housed an offset printing shop. Eric originally wrote of this era in an article, "12 Warren Street," in 2006. This creative approach brings to life the variety of characters Eric encountered during his time downtown.
