On Sunday afternoon, a Chinese man was handing out a flyer, allegedly “for an artist,” near Wall Street and at Zuccotti Park. It was purportedly written by “the hottest star from China” seeking a “not asian” husband with a lengthy list of requirements, including but not limited to a masters from “Harvard” “Yale” or “Oxon,” […]

(Photo: “Double Check” sculpture in Liberty Plaza taken by Susan Meiselas on September 12, 2001) While a lot of noise was made on NY1 this year over the 59th Street Bridge’s new moniker, even English-speaking cabbies are good for blank stares if you suggest the Ed Koch Bridge back to Greenpoint.

A little after 11:25PM, there was a big commotion on the south side of Zuccotti Park as someone mic checked that the NYPD was moving into to remove the “medical tent” (tents are a violation of the park’s rules.). Occupy Wall Street protesters immediately locked arms and vowed to protect it. Out of nowhere, civil […]

After a quick mic check, Occupy Wall Street protesters were quickly able to drum up support for a victory march to celebrate their non-eviction from Zuccotti Park. And they wasted no time making that happen. […]

Amazingly, the Occupy Wall Street protests have once again defied all odds and won’t be evicted for an official clean up of Zuccotti Park after all. Thousands of people converged on the encampment early this morning and the crowd broke out in a thunderous cheer when it was announced, via the “people’s mic,” that Brookfield […]
