As we’ve documented the changes in Occupy Wall Street over the past month, it occurred to us that we had forgotten one giant demographic: the non-Occupiers of Wall Street. Zuccotti Park’s tourists, the locally employed, and those poor souls who actually lived in the area…what did they think of the never-ending protests?
Unfortunately, we soon found out that many of the people that worked in the area weren’t willing to give us sound bites on how OWS has affected their life as a hedge fund capitalist. But we were able to track down a couple of onlookers and ask them about the movement: was it annoying, rejuvenating, or just plain underwhelming? Read on to find out.
