Look | Protesters Return to Occupy Zuccotti Park

Hundreds of protesters returned to Zuccotti Park early Tuesday evening, about an hour after a ruling by Manhattan Supreme Court ruled that they could legally return to the park. Police cleared a path at the north and south ends of the park and a steady stream of protesters filed in to cheers and applause.
