Occupiers Literally Sleep On the Sidewalk of Wall Street
The Occupation has returned in the spring. After occupy wall street was kicked out of Zuccotti, Occupiers went uptown to Union Square. After attempts to sleep in Union Square Park proved futile, occupiers began sleeping on sidewalks. Someone researched the New York City laws concerning protesters, and apparently found out it is legal to sleep on sidewalks as a part of protesting, provided that enough of the sidewalk is open to allow passerby to get by. Occupiers began using this to sleep in front of the Bank of America and Citibank near union square. Earlier this week, occupiers began using this regulation to sleep on wall street itself. The video in the link shows occupiers been told by the police to sleep near the building and leave one half of the sidewalk open. The intersection of Nassau and Wall Street has become an occupy encampment. Near Bank of America and Citibank near union are other occupy encampments. Its ironic that after six months, occupiers have finally found a way to occupy wall street, quite literally.
