Occupy Wall Street, in Union Square

Occupy Union Square, nyc Photo by myself, in Union Square.

Friday, the Occupy Wall Street protest continued peacefully in Union Square.

Above, a fellow in color dress carried a sign that read 'Money is the route of all bullsh-t'. Behind me, a few policemen stood quietly on watch for any funny business.


I was near Union Square doing errands on Friday, getting some last-minute things for my vacation.

People had left the office early, and we had flooded the sidewalks to enjoy the beautiful Spring day. There was a general hubbub of excitement for the long weekend ahead.

And I had one of those moments, where I was missing New York before I'd even left. This happens often, where I simply fall in love with the city. Sometimes I get that feeling and I'm not even leaving!

You are visiting nyc at the greatest time. We've had some cold-ish nights but some of the days are just stellar Spring days. We often have little to no Springtime in the city.

I know exactly what you mean, btw. I get jolts of energy when walking around, soaking up the streets, too. There is always something to look at and something new to experience.
