Occupy Wall Street’s Battle for a New Home, Will It be Duarte Square?

Since the raid on Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park last month, the movement and related working groups have been searching for a new space to call home. Many have had their eye on Duarte Square, a vacant lot on Sixth Avenue and Canal Street that is comprised of both public and private land. While Duarte Park is owned by the city, the larger enclosed portion of the square belongs to Trinity Real Estate, a commercial realty business that holds six million square feet in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Lower Manhattan.
