Two Union Square Arrests

Gothamist reports that two Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested for unknown reasons as the police again closed Union Square Park this morning. “We passed by Union Square from the north just before midnight, and the first thing that caught our eye were the dozens of police cruisers and vans parked in the bike lane along the entire east side of the park,” Gothamist complains. “This creates an obvious hazard, forcing bikers out into the two lanes of traffic zooming down Park Avenue.”
