Just after 1 a.m. this morning, New York City police cleared out the park that has been the center of the so-called Occupy Wall Street protest in lower Manhattan. According to the New York Times, the police arrested “dozens” of the more than 200 people who had been camped out in the Zuccotti Park overnight for the last two months.

The encampment has been the subject of much attention and much controversy since it began. In late October, Verona resident Tom Jung, who blogs at VeronaLiving, went to see what all the fuss was about. He went point by point through the criticisms that have been made of the protesters, and found that much of it was baseless. “…I found Zucotti Park to be a warm, high energy, safe place,” he wrote. “I encourage each of you to do your own research and make your own decisions.  And don’t listen to all that crap on TV. ”
