May Day NYC - Take The Streets
I took the train into Manhattan today planning to spend an hour or so checking out the "Free University" that was taking place in Madison Square Park, and then head to the lab to do some writing. Long story short, I sort of got caught up in the energy of the May Day celebrations, particularly when the main Occupy group came marching down the middle of Fifth Avenue.
(Editorial note: I have to commend the NYPD for how they handled things today. In the past, anyone not on the sidewalk was threatened with arrest. Today, I didn't see any confrontation at all.)
