Empty Houses Beware

Bold Italic can tell you how to squat, rent-free, in the city. They followed an activist group called Homes Not Jails which helps homeless find abandoned buildings to live in until they, eventually, get kicked out. Squatters use many different Nancy Drew-style techniques to find out if a place is vacant, because according them “You don’t want to get inside and hear someone snoring, it’s the worst feeling in the world.” Just imagine how the snorer feels! Looking for your own rent-free digs? Put a produce tie on the gate and come back later to see if it's been broken. In tact? You've found your very own crash pad. [Bold Italic]
