Morgan Stanley has sent an email to employees advising them that they will be on lockdown tomorrow.

No one will be added to visitor lists for Friday after the end of the day Thursday, the firm told employees.

Why?

They are battening down the hatches in advance of an anticipated Occupy Wall Street march through midtown that will start in Bryant Park tomorrow, according to the email. Thr route is expected to take marchers past financial institutions in midtown.

From two to five in the afternoon, the firm will have an "enhanced perimeter security" at its two offices on Broadway and on Fifth Avenue.

Morgan Stanley did not immediately respond to an emailed inquiry about the security measures.
