Folks jumped the fence and cut the locks, several hundred inside now. We have erected structures inside the new fenced off park. The structures are modular houses whose facades are made of scanned blow-up photos of love letters to OWS that came in with care packages from around the country.
Need reinforcements ASAP. Please help us hold the park. Spread the word.
Zuccotti is currently double barricaded with heavy police presence and at least 2 arrests. Help hold this new park in the meantime.
It is owned by Trinity Church's real estate development firm, called Global Strategies. A coalition of NYC clergy leaders have come out in support of OWS taking the space and are calling on Trinity to give it to us.
The park is across the street from Duarte Square, a public park. It is also next to another park, so lots of open space there for GAs. Also a major traffic corridor - by the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, and not a residential area. Local Community Board 2 has been very supportive of OWS.
