Description

Exterior of the building after the 1970 occupation of the Graduate Center of the New School for Social Research, formerly located at 65 Fifth Avenue in New York City. The protesters's signs cover the facade around the entrance, and two police officers guard the entrance. Fernandez was a photography instructor at the New School for Social Research and a documentary photographer. Vera and Albert List helped purchase and renovate a former department store  building at 65 Fifth Avenue in 1967, later the home of the Graduate Faculty. The building was named "The Albert List Academic Center." It was demolished in 2010 to be replaced by the University Center.
