Zuccotti keeps going.

Just before midnight came a sign that the calls were having an impact: The park’s owner, also under pressure, e-mailed City Hall to say the plan should be canceled. The mayor’s office agreed — the police would stand down and the protesters would remain, with their sleeping bags and tents, in Zuccotti Park.
