Arrests in many parts of lower Manhattan. These are in Herald Sq.

There was also an attempt to occupy Juan Pablo Duarte Park which is owned by Trinity Church a bit north west of Zucotti Park.

A protester named Austin was arrested in Times Square about 6:50 PM. I believe it was Austin Guest ’05.

A report from AP about the day.

An exercise in journalism: A mic check announced that police officers were covering their badges with electrical tape. Livestream Tim [The Other 99 above] observed that badge names and numbers were clearly visible.  Officers are wearing black ribbons on their badges to mourn an officer who fell two days ago. Good job Tim.
