Occupy Wall Street marches the Brooklyn Bridge

On Saturday, October 1, a solidarity march left the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zuccotti Park, and thousands proceeded north to City Hall and then began to cross the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.  A stand-off with police ensued and mass arrests numbered up to 1,000.

I was out of town and missed it but this is an excellent video showing the march and stand-off:

The movement is gaining traction and is spreading to cities across America:

Streets, architecture, and people. Ruined places. History. Frozen moments. Great love for imagines wrought by beautiful mystery of film and vintage cheapy cameras. WRITING The vague, ephemeral. The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep.
