NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Kristen Shaughnessy's July 5, 1995 coverage as a near riot broke out on the 4th of July when police evicted some two dozen squatters who were occupying a rundown building in Alphabet City.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The city eventually won a long court battle that gave authorities the right to evict squatters from condemned buildings.
