It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve checked in on Occupy Wall Street’s most photogenic protesters (also known as “those people who allow us to take their picture), and since our last round of portraits, a lot has changed. There are tents now! And criminals from Rikers Island! (One of whom we met, and was very nice!)
There is a whole new class of bright-eyed, underage protesters to take the place of the early adopters who burnt out around the time the FDNY took the generators away. But the spirit remains, as was evidenced by a 8:00 p.m. impromptu ho-down on Liberty and Broadway, which was very fun until the cops came and arrested some of the people dancing.
Ah Zuccotti Park. Never change. Or do.
