The Hottest People at Occupy Wall Street

  • zora zr The Hottest People at Occupy Wall Street

    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.

    was there talking with these beautiful and peaceful kids sat. you missed many of  the most attractive kids but that wasn’t their most important message

  2. JS says:

    Uh those chicks aren’t hot. Meh at best.
    2) Nasty face, chick in background has giant ass but she’s not hot either.
    3) Good body and cute-ish face but butch hair is a major turn off, maybe the only do-able one here though.
    5) LOOK AT THAT FACE! OMG NO, good body though, classic paper bag scenario.
    6) No way, just no way.
    8) Oh this ones not bad, she kinda looks like a bit of a bitch though.
    9) She’s not too bad either, probably wouldn’t hit it sober but maybe with a light buzz.
    10) Yuck, she’s skinny but has no tits, nasty face too.

    Why do none of these girls seem to be wearing makeup, they need it.

      wow, your kind of a disgusting, chauvinistic asshole. 

      1. Gorgonzola says:

         Um….. the article is entitled “The Hottest People at Occupy Wall Street”; if you have a grievance, it’s with the Observer, not “JS”.

    2. Renegade322 says:

      Hehe, not a bad HOT or NOT analysis. I too am a disgusting, chauvinistic asshole but I think LVB is one of the women pictured.

    3. Really? says:

      okay your turn!  post your picture so we can tell you how ugly you are!

    4. Trevor Salse says:

      who are you to rip on them they may not be attractive i agree but simply who the fuck are you to voice your piece of shit opinion.

    5. skeezballs says:

      haha classic paper bag scenario

  3. Marcel says:

    Zora’s my friend! 

    1. Renegade322 says:

      She’s pretty hot. Is she a bitch?

    2. Nyellis says:

      How can she be your friend if you call her Zora but her name is actually Zara?

    3. Anonymous says:

      Is she in the same mental facility as you are?

  4. I love Jesse LaGreca! Awesome faceoff with Fox News!

  5. Anonymous says:

    Not one of these people can describe, in any sort of intelligible fashion, why they are protesting or what they hope the protest will accomplish. I have yet to hear one protester articulately explain why they are “occupying Wall Street” (including LaGreca, who sounded like an over-excited, marginally informed, self-satisfied teenager in his FOX News interview).  The message is “we’re mad!, rich people suck, capitalism sucks (oh wait, what is capitalism??), revolution!”  If there was a clear, well-reasoned message, I might not completely disagree with it.  But as it stands, this whole protest strikes me as completely pointless.

    now all you little boys keep your peelin’ eyes off of my young daughter. she ain’t goin’ to be swept away by no man. she needs to stay home and feed the pigs with uncle jeb. 

  7. A Skeptic says:

    Proles.  We need a good war.

  8. Anonymous says:

    Jesse LaGreca rockin’ the Union Soldier cap FTW.

    Awesome, civil war part 2 isn’t a bad idea.  I know what side I’m on. 

  9. Dphampton says:

    Are we protesting Wall Street or Hydraulic Fracking? Or are we just bored, and like to blame other people for our problems?

  10. Soren Kay says:

    Those are some pretty homely “hot” people.

  11. Black Flag says:

    Do we know what we’re protesting yet? Have our billionaire masters called to tell us what that is? Or are we going to continue to play useful idiots for them while they use us to fight the other billionaires?

  13. Black Flag says:

    Guess which President has raked in the most Wall Street bucks in a generation? If you guessed Obama you’d be right. It’s like a financial circle-jerk. Wall Street gives Obama money, Obama gets elected, Obama gives Wall Street stimulus money, Wall Street donates to Obama, Wall Stree Hopes Obama gets elected and pays off like a slot-machine so they can start the cycle again with the next candidate. Can you say money laundering fast three times?

  14. Black Flag says:

    Liberals, you can scream at everyone else all you want. You can blame Palin, Beck, Bush, Limbaugh, Nixon. But YOU voted in the very best the Left had to offer and now look – nothing is working. This America-hating Marxist Community Organizer has broken everything he’s touched. Go yell at him, not us.

  15. Black Flag says:

    Now that Obama has been in over two years, the wars have ended, the economy is booming, the deficit is under control, our foreign policy is respected worldwide, the Democrat Party has made solid gains nationally, people in America are coming together and the Middle East is calm.

    Ha! Just kidding! None of that actually happened! Joke’s on all of us!

  16. Nyellis says:

    Only Zara was cute, relatively speaking. In absolute terms they’re all trolls.

  17. Angelo R. Mozilo says:

    Wow, I take back everything I said about this being a frivolous and unfocused fad movement

    Here’s one person this site missed:

    Name: Dummy Bonehead

    Days at the protest: I am not sure. One day, two days, a week. Who cares, man? I get to p*ss and sh*t all over the place. Yeah! What brings you here? I don’t want to work – I want to find some rich people and take their stuff. It all belongs to us, you know? Do you have a message? Free government cheese for all! And let’s re-elect Obama, cause he is, like, black, you know? If you don’t vote for Obama, you are racist, right? Hobbies: Not bathing, not cleaning my rearend, and stinking like hell. Plus I can throw a turd at police over 10 feet. They should have, like, an Olympic sport for that, you know?

    1. Trevor Salse says:

      Yes the hippies that like free food and tents are the in same group of people that are trying to demand change to this collapsing economy and and want to diminish the stronghold big business has over “stuff” (way of life, natural resources etc.) But lets not let there missions be confused. EDUCATE yourself and know the comfort you and your family feel is a blessing. Your point of view makes me believe you are well off (not rich) and the economy crisis hasn’t effected you in anyway so you see no need for change and from your comfy, typically routine life  you infect the world with your opinions and beliefs. Just because you dont see what needs to be done dosent mean something dosent need to change. how about wee keep out opinions to ourself cause quite frankly I see  your not stupid but I see a lot of ignorance from you.

  19. Garrett York says:

    Really? These are the “hottest” people at OWS? Only the chick with the boots and camera was anywhere near attractive and I suspect she was covering the event more than participating in it.

  20. Gorgonzola says:

     WOW.  Seriously?  A glam spread?   How, um, “newsy”.

  21. Anonymous says:

    So.. yeah – Hottest People at Occupy Wall Street – just a bunch of losers.  How many had a job, much less a career?  How many have a mortgage, children, a spouse? How many have actualy contributed ANYTHING of value to society?   How many have a CLUE?    “boycott sex trafficking”:  Really – How do you do that, exactly??
    “Everyone should contribute 20%”:  Have you seen may paystub, biotch?  If she’d ever earned one herself, and could do basic math, you’d know that you already contribute at least 20%.
    “This city just sprang up here”: Really???  Only is ‘just’ can be defined as almost 400 years.. 

  22. Jim Treacher says:

    Slim pickin’s…

  23. Sukie Tawdry says:

    That’s what passes for “hot” down there? Sad. One of them listed as a hobby “boycotting sex trafficking.” What does that even mean? She won’t patronize sex workers who traffic or are trafficked (is there another group out there who will use only trafficked sex workers?)?? These folks are every bit as brainy as they are beautiful. 

  24. Hattrick752 says:

    i would go if zora bowman showed up here in san diego

  25. dawnpatrol says:

    Only one hot chick there

  26. Trevor Salse says:

    Just cause people aren’t dirty and have combed there hair dosent mean there hot. I understand what this artical is trying to do and like the idea but c’mon. Such a nobile cause degraded by vanity. They are trying to change the world for the better and were talking about wether there attractive or not… is this who we really are?

  27. the RIGHT protestor says:

     Do any of these people know who there congressman or senator is ? This is a nation governed by laws. Think camping out in a park is going to change that ? Learn how to LOBBY. How do you think the wall streeters acquired there money, it wasn’t camping !!

  28. Tyler Durden Maybe says:

    P.I.L.F.

  29. debbie says:

    wow really? thats what you think is hot geez your standards are as low and smelly as these  lol >protesters”

  30. Mark V Reid says:

    Man you missed a few people lol! Lupe is hot for one! Amber is hot! What’s up with using the last names? No need lol.

  31. Mark V Reid says:

    No these women are hot! Also every woman is beautiful! Also spirit is more important and in a way hotter than “hot” haha!

  32. JJ ... WHY ARE YOU JJ???? says:

    The Saba girl is cute, Joanna and the Zora girl are attractive.  JS is a clown and wishes he could get his D within 5 feet of ANY of those chicks

  33. justanotherdude says:

    why are people getting mad that guys like me are giving our opinions on the looks of  women when women do the same thing to men?   And most of the women here are not hot * major exception is the chic with camera*

  34. KS says:

    your not judgung by poeple in the backround idiot
