The City of New York Blinks: Protesters Win a Round

The deputy mayor of New York City says a planned cleaning of the occupation encampment near Wall Strret has been postponed.

The protesters had said the planned cleanup at 7 a.m. was merely a pretext to evict them.

Reports indicate supporters streamed into the plaza early Friday before the announcement. There was a strong NYPD presence, and a showdown between protesters and authorities had been feared.
