Occupy Wall Street Becoming A Tent City

It's a pretty quiet day at Zuccotti Park.

The headquarters of Occupy Wall Street is noticeably less crowded than it was last week. Fewer protesters are around than usual, although the recognizable faces of the hardcore everyday residents are still here. It seems that many of the part-timers just didn't show up today.

The biggest change has been the addition of tents. I counted a half dozen tents in the park today.

The city had previously banned tents. But now that ban seems to have lapsed. This is no doubt making life easier for the protesters but it also makes navigating through the park more difficult.
