A walk through Zuccotti Park
It’s not as big as Central Park and it doesn’t even have trees or benches.
It’s Zuccotti Park and the name probably sounds familiar to you from the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in 2011.
Right now as you walk through it , it’s very peaceful with all sorts of Modern Art sculptures and lots of food trucks.
It’s a perfect spot to be in after you’ve visited the September 11th Memorial .
Where Zuccotti Park now stands , the first coffeehouse in New York City now stands, and it wasn’t a Starbucks .
Zuccotti Park used to be called Liberty Plaza and while the colonists in Boston were dumping tea into the Boston Harbor to protest the Tea Tax, New York colonists had already began their protesting 1773.
They didn’t dump anything into New York Harbor.
They just occupied Liberty Plaza.
Some things haven’t changed.
