They may have lost their home in Zuccotti Park, but Occupy Wall Street made its presence felt in Lower Manhattan on Thursday.

Demonstrators attempted to delay the opening of the New York Stock Exchange. They later held demonstrations on New York City's subway system before gathering for a march across the Brooklyn Bridge. And it wasn't just New York. Demonstrations were held across the country as the movement plans its next moves.

Bloomberg Says Zuccotti Park to Remain Closed Over Court Order

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Hours after police in riot gear stormed Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan to evict Occupy Wall Street protesters, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended his decision to clear the encampment in a press conference. Taking credit for the decision, Bloomberg said the raid was necessary for public safety. A judge issued a restraining order against New York City in the early hours of Monday morning, saying the protesters could return to Zucotti with their belongings. After initially saying the park would reopen at 8:00 am on Monday morning, Bloomberg said the park will remain closed while the city clarified the restraining order.
