What You’ll Do

In autumn of 2011, thousands of activists descended upon lower Manhattan, frustrated by income inequality and the power wielded by banks and corporations. What would become Occupy Wall Street quickly snowballed, inspiring political fervor across the country and the world. On this three-hour tour, original Occupier Michael Pellagatti takes participants to some of the movement’s most important sites, sharing his personal story against the backdrop of recent—and not-so-recent—American history.

  • The First Walk
    Retrace the steps of Occupy’s inaugural walk, heading north on Broadway from the museum to Zuccotti Park while Michael recollects police-protestor tensions.

  • The Main Hub
    At the protest’s geographical heart, where activists set up a sprawling encampment, Michael shares stories and photos, pointing out where activists set up work stations such as the library, the clinic, and the kitchen.

  • Wall Street and Beyond
    Michael’s firsthand account continues at Wall Street’s Federal Hall, where he and his fellow activists lived outside while attempting to re-mount the movement in the spring of 2012. Then the group walks to the Brooklyn Bridge, where Michael and 780 others were arrested, before concluding in Foley Square, where 40,000 protesters challenged the NYPD’s breaking up of the encampment.
