CNBC Occupy Wall Street No Shut Downs NYC
While some media coverage had anticipated that the protests would shut down several cities across the world and prevent people from going to work, it sure didn't work out that way in New York.
In fact, the total turnout for the morning marches wouldn't have shut down a decent-sized side street in the Bronx, let alone any major thorougfares in the financial capital of the world.
Still, organizers deemed the event a success.
"As far as numbers go, it's going to build up during the day," promised Mark Bray, an Occupy Wall Street media liaison. "For a rainy Tuesday morning, we had a good turnout."
