The Fences are Down at Zuccotti Park
After a fairly long absence for winter break, I returned to New York City only a few days after the news broke that the fences came down at Zuccotti Park.
Unfortunately, the ensuing celebrations did lead to several arrests.
Going around the park, the following things were noticeable: neither police, nor private security presence had diminished visibly.
Also noticable: the utter cleanliness of the park and the gardens, damaged in the occupation and ruined in the eviction, that were slowly being replanted (despite the bitter cold).
