The occupation of Zuccotti Park ended in the early hours of the morning Tuesday. On orders from the Mayor’s office, police surrounded the park and penned in demonstrators, ripping down tents and throwing away personal effects that had made Zuccotti home for nearly two months.
After demonstrators were arrested or evicted, they set out in search of a new home in downtown Manhattan. They settled briefly on Foley Square near New York City Supreme Court. As the protesters regrouped and planned their next move, dawn broke on a new day in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
