New York: With just a few protesters huddled against the cold winds at Zuccotti Park on Friday, city officials are hoping protests which have taken place here for the past two months have run their course.
“There are problems in the country,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show. “You can make yourself heard, which I think has been done. Now it’s time to get back and build the economy and create the good paying jobs that people need.”
Having been evicted in the early hours of Tuesday morning by New York police and no longer allowed to camp at the park, just a handful of occupiers huddled together against brisk autumn winds in a largely empty space.
