I just had to do this … visit Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan where Occupy Wall Street happened. It’s a small nondescript ‘in the middle of a concrete jungle’ park, a block away from the World Trade Center area. It’s a wonder how it was able to accommodate thousands of occupiers.
No occupiers are there now. I suppose there might be stragglers, there are a few people milling about with leaflets and stuff, one even had a sign – ask me all about Occupy Wall Street, but they looked like they were hucksters, really, not the real occupiers.
It is cold there, because it is under the shadows of tall buildings and also of the tunneling effect on the air/wind flow. But come spring, it might be full of occupiers again.
