Occupy Wall Street Regroups on Broadway: Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, and Philip Glass Join the Fray at Lincoln Center

If you worked anywhere along NYC’s longest street, you may have seen a familiar sight yesterday evening: the Occupy Wall Street protesters! They were back!

Well, technically they never went anywhere. They’ve just “decentralized,” as one organizer put it. But yesterday’s march gathered thousands to the street as labor unions once again rallied in solidarity with OWS in a “”March for Jobs and Economic Fairness,” organized by the Central Labor Council. Ah, it’s good to hear those General Assembly names once again!

The path was an odd one: Herald Square to Union Square to Zuccotti Park, where a G.A. meeting was held at its nightly 7:00 time slot. Then back uptown to hear the 10:30 speech on the steps of Lincoln Center, where Philip Glass was the guest of honor, performing┬á his piece Satyagraha, in honor of Ghandi. . Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson were there too! You’d usually have to pay well over $200 for a musical lineup like that, but for tonight it was free.

Even so, that’s a lot of marching, but it’s good to get the blood flowing and remind people that you’re still around, despite Media Blackout 2.0 on New York’s own OWS. Good job for everyone involved, and mind those barricades that the police had set up well in preparation for the event. This weekend, Occupy Broadway is going back to Times Square, which, if nothing else, should bring about enough arrests to get the country to start paying attention to the NYC movement again.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von F├╝rstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
