Holding down Zucotti Park
Occupants bundle up in sleeping bags and try to catch some Z's on Oct. 11 in Zuccotti Park near New York City's Wall Street. Protesters in New York have occupied the space for almost a month, and since then, hundreds of similar occupations have sprouted up across the country. The campsite at Zucotti Park, which includes a "grassroots" kitchen that feeds thousands of protesters a day, is kept up and running through the participation of volunteers and donations.
