Zuccotti Park — Epicenter of the Occupy protest movement. Demonstrators occupied the plaza in tents for nearly two months beginning in September before police dismantled their camp.

Brooklyn Bridge — A national landmark and link between the New York boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn crossed by more than 120,000 vehicles a day. The bridge became a focal point of the Occupy movement on October 1 when police arrested more than 700 protesters trying to march across it.

Wall Street — The heart of New York's financial district and the focus of the Occupy movement. The street is home to the world's largest stock exchange, the New York Stock Exchange.

Foley Square — A small plaza with trees and grass surrounded by federal and state courthouses. Occupy protesters gathered here to regroup after being evicted from Zuccotti Park on November 15.

NYC Subway — New York's 24-hour public transit system used by millions of riders each day. The NYC subway system has 468 stations – the most subway stations of any system in the world.
