    OccupyWallStreet Stops traffic on Park Avenue NYC


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     belwell says he captured this photo while OWS protesters started crossing the street next to Union Square. The size of the OWS group and the pace in which they crossed the street caused major traffic issues, backing up traffic all the way to Park Ave. in New York City. belwell says it has been a week since OWS protesters have set up camp in Union Square and he says the atmosphere of the area has definitely changed. The feel of the area is tenser, especially since it is a residential area, and it seems as though there are more altercations between OWS protesters and those who pass by the area, says belwell. "I have seen people screaming at each other, and I have seen people claiming to live in the city telling protesters to leave Union Square."
