Occupy Town Square, in Tompkins Square Park

The Occupy Wall Street movement held a peaceful rally Sunday afternoon.

There was a drum circle, loads of signs and general protest about the disparity of wealth in the US. The drum circle was particularly effective - you could hear the persistent thumping for blocks.

Tompkins Square has long been associated with social unrest. In the late '80s, the park was filled with the homeless and was considered dangerous.

Hi Kitty! Will this movement have any influence on the run for the White House?

I don't hear much about the Occupy movement lately. Glad they're still showing up, though I can't say I'm optimistic about their accomplishing much.
