"York Kids March on City Hall, Call It a 'Class' Fight"

This Daily News article details a May 1968 march by York College students in protest against what they considered inadequate campus facilities. York, the newest of the CUNY schools at the time, relied on temporary space within Queensborough Community College from 1968 to 1971. While there was much discussion over where the permanent campus ought to be placed (Jamaica), many felt little regard was given to the school's facilities in the interim.
