PADDY WAGON REPORT 11:59am – LOL! Some people were livestreaming, with their plastic handcuffs on, from inside an NYPD Paddy Wagon! I think they got stopped now. But, they are showing clips from the coverage. It was great! They were mic checking in solidarity: http://www.livestream.com/occupynyc

Several people were arrested, including many media-related people.

In NYC, several hundred Occupy Wall Street protesters are outside Goldman Sachs “squidding”. Story at Gothamist: here.

Someone writes on the Live Stream comments that they are at the World Financial Center in NYC (not a direct Goldman Sachs building).
