Occupy Wall Street Marches on Times Square

Home Brooklyn Life Occupy Wall Street Marches on Times Square

The Brooklyn Ink team followed the Occupy Wall Street protesters Saturday. This movement has spread to Brooklyn, and about 100 protesters  started the day protesting in Grand Army Plaza, our reporters were there. Later in the day, our reporters followed the action to Manhattan and covered the protesters as they marched along Sixth Avenue from Washington Square Park to Times Square. What started as a small gathering in the park swelled to thousands in the heart of New York City. The Times Square protests ended with almost 50 arrests being made as a result of a tense confrontation with the New York City Police Department.
