Tim Pool (@timcast) is livestreaming the activities in New York City today for Occupy Wall Street's first anniversary. There are currently two different marches on either side of Broadway heading north right now. There have already today been multiple arrests, and I'll try to find you an exact number on those, but I expect there will already be more by the time I find it! Heavy NYPD presence everywhere. Tim just said there have been 30 to 50 arrests thus far, according to estimates on the ground. He is now right across the street from Zuccotti Park, and he will have updates on Twitter, and I'll update as frequently as I can.
