The Hottest People at Occupy Wall Street

[gallery] Sunday afternoon, The Observer went down to Zuccotti Park to continue our series of portraits of protesters and other people drawn to the Financial District. Suddenly we noticed a trend: a preponderance of very attractive people in the crowd. Since Occupy Wall Street's foes love to dismiss the protesters as "druggy" and unhygenic, we thought we would highlight a few of the glamorous citizens of the 99 percent. Qualifications included charisma, optimism, or a certain way of bantering with a Fox News producer, but basically we shot anyone we just couldn't stop staring at. While we hope this gallery brings a new view to the people behind the Occupy Wall Street movement, we also hope it clears up any outstanding mysteries before the next round of Craigslist Missed Connections.
