Brooklyn Bridge March 20111001
Fox News ,
Image by Tomathon
As you can see, we visited Liberty Square (arriving late), made our way to Brooklyn Bridge (Church st, Vesey, Park Row) Marchers at Centre & Chambers were then blocked from south by cops who came tearing in from Vesey (4:05-11). We couldn’t reach them (and looking at the nervy cops, didn’t want to), so we went down Frankfort as march entered the bridge. Cops had by that time (c.4:15) blocked FDR & Pearl Street entrances to bridge on both sides. Cops were telling motorists on Pearl that Protesters were blocking the bridge (c. 4:17). Literally at the moment marchers entered the bridge. Exit/ entrance stairs were blocked by cops (so no exit allowed from ped walkway). From below we could see only cars, no peds, on south roadway (c. 4:15-20).

From that point we moved to South Street Mall (third level) to get view of whole bridge. At that point data service on AT&T — which had been nothing, not even E while voice had five bars — returned. Saw arrests, police helio (only: at one point c. 6pm a press helio arrived. Stayed ~ 1 min before police helio returned and press fled or were ordered by traffic control, up the East R out of sight at rapid clip), At that point busses appeared on bridge to take arrestees: we could identify six in all. Also post helio incident, s police patrol boat positioned south of bridge, and tourist boats and other small craft made 180 degree turns both north and south out of area. Assuming there were radio orders at that time to clear river of civilian craft.

Took pictures and monitored updates till 7pm, arrived Liberty Sq 7:20, via Wall Street. On Wall pairs of cops stationed at every building entrance, four plus a whiteshirt at the Trump building, all looking v worried.

On return to Liberty Sq, cordoned by uniforms, as huge crowd sang and fraternized w cops. White shirts then pulled back cops c 8pm, riot squad groups appeared around corner south on Bway. After reportbacks at sq, we returned to Ferry via Greenwich & State. EVERY tiny side street had police vans up them, EVERY corner down to ferry had a uniform stationed at corner. The Police presence in whole of downtown smothering, including cameras mounted on main avenues, "terror" barriers around Wall, french barricades along every street in area, including tourists blocked from approaching Wall Street Bull (well south of Wall) with four cops stationed to "protect" it from when we arrived (3pm) to when we left (8:30pm)

Below is my twitter accounts from c4pm to c8pm (start time for “hours ago” id noon 10-02)
