October 11, 2011- Protesters from the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in Lower Manhattan took the rolling, roiling march up to the Silk Stocking District this afternoon with a raucous protest in front of the homes of some of New York’s wealthiest residents.
Several hundred demonstrators gathered in front of the Plaza Hotel at the bottom of Central Park chanting, “We are the 99 percent! And We Are On The Upper East Side!” and made their way north, first to Rupert Murdoch’s building at 834 Fifth Avenue, then on to David Koch’s building on Park Ave, and later to Howard Milstein and John Paulson’s homes further uptown. They carried signs which said, “Tax the Millionaires,” and some carried homemade signs that said “Koch Brothers–Dem Belly Full” and “No More Cake–Off With Their Heads!”
