Protesters will have to clear out of the private Manhattan park where they’ve been camped out for nearly a month so the owners can clean it, but they’ll be allowed to return afterward, city officials said.
Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said in a statement Wednesday that the protest has “created unsanitary conditions and considerable wear and tear on the park.” He said Brookfield Properties asked for police help to clear Zuccotti Park so it can be cleaned.
Holloway said the cleaning will be done in stages Friday. Protesters will have to leave but can return. Mayor Michael Bloomberg visited the protesters Wednesday to offer assurances.
