Clayton’s Corner: On Scene at Occupy Wall Street

Posted on: September 30th, 2011 at 10:19 am by

Clayton Patterson was again on hand at the Occupy Wall Street protest/rally/happening, and filed the following photo report:

The cops stopped the march, although was peaceful and on the sidewalk and following all the rules- from going north when Occupy Wall Street started to march uptown. The cops keep this up but finally the group crossed Canal street and then the cops allowed the march to go forward.  At one stop an individual dressed in civilian clothes, rushed into the crowd and started to physically push one of the marchers- he did not identify himself as a police office.  Only after he could not start a fight and he backed up I could see a piece of ID hanging in front of him- he tried very hard to stop me from  photographing him-

He clearly was in the wrong- he was trying to start a fight- and he never id’ed himself as a cop- then he left the march- other photos are at stalled blocks.

Already with one multinational bank to its name, 314 Grand Street certainly didn’t need another; especially fifteen feet away. Anyone could tell you that. Though, such is life on the Lower East Side. Contractors erected corner-hogging scaffolding on Friday afternoon, a facade obstruction that’ll be with us for the foreseeable future. You’ll recall that Zarin Fabrics relocated […]

Rayuela on Allen Street is the latest Lower East Side restaurant to employ ye olde unannounced shutter for “renovations” trick.

Scope of the so-called renovations is unknown to the public at the moment, and […]

    Saw some other guy dressed as a constuction worker posted on Fulton and bway today. My gut told me that he looked a bit suspicious as there was zero activity at the site. I thought maybe he was an undercover cop. The actions of this guy only reinforce that. Also spotted about 7 white shirts by Chatham sqr and worth and they completely blocked all access around 1 police plaza. One posted cop said it was to keep the protesters away from the headquarters.
