At Occupy Wall Street: Some Arrests; A Chaotic 'Morning Rush'
As Eyder continues to file posts from the streets of lower Manhattan, where Occupy Wall Street protesters are trying to surround the intersections that lead to the New York Stock Exchange, here are some other views of what's happening there and other resources for monitoring what's happening:
-- The latest lede on The New York Times' City Room blog is that "hundreds of protesters from Zuccotti Park clashed with the police as they tried to reach the New York Stock Exchange Thursday morning, and at least 50 were arrested."
-- New York's Daily News says "the mobile protest turned the typical morning rush hour into chaos," around the financial district.
-- CBS New York says "there's been some pushing and shoving." The protesters, it adds, "were greeted by a large police presence, who had essentially turned the blocks surrounding the NYSE into a large 'frozen zone.' "
-- NPR's Margot Adler reports from the "Wall Street canyon" that there "was some shoving going on" and that police were "pulling some people out" and making arrests.
-- WNYC estimates that "about 500 protesters gathered" early in the day at Zuccotti Park and then headed off toward Wall Street.
-- There's a live feed from "The Other 99" here. It's a webcast, from the street, of the protesters' perspective.
