The Occupy Wall Streeters have been camped out at their Zuccotti Park headquarters in Manhattan’s Financial District for three weeks now. Zuccotti Park wasn’t their intended campsite. They originally wanted to pitch tents on Wall Street, but that wasn’t possible due to police barricades.
Still, their accidental campsite has proved to be an ideal location for the growing movement. The park already has trees, granite sidewalks, tables, seats and benches, lights and electrical outlets.
What’s more is demonstrators have added their own amenities making Zuccotti Park their new home.
