As the Occupy Wall Street movement rapidly fades into obscurity, historians will surely look back to Halloween weekend as the tipping point when things went horribly wrong. Already faced with temperatures in the 30s last night, our heroes fled to the comfy confines of a local art gallery.
As fed-up cops are prepared to slap rowdy “Occupy Wall Street” protesters with civil lawsuits, fed-up Zuccotti Park protesters have found a way take a slap at Mother Nature.
Some of the OWS masses dodged yesterday’s cold and rain by ditching their tents and huddling in a nearby art gallery with free WiFi.
Some two dozen protesters and their gear took refuge in the nearby Charlotte’s Place art and public space run by Trinity Wall Street church.
In addition to the Internet connection, Charlotte’s Place has live music at 2 p.m., art on the walls, books and more than a dozen tables.
