Occupy Wall Street demonstrators took their protests uptown this weekend, as 6,000 activists gathered in Times Square to protest economic inequality. The protesters mixed alongside crowds of tourists, as well as costumed
attendees from New York Comic Con, taking place a few blocks away.

According to Bloomberg 70 protesters were arrested on the day, 42 after a large confrontation with the NYPD at 46th and Sixth. Two police officers were hospitalized after suffering injuries. According to CBS, a police horse was knocked over earlier in the day.
