Wall Street: SHAMED!

Yes that’s right, the people from Project for Public Spaces have created a list of the worst public spaces in the world and guess who came up on the list…here’s their assessment:

The symbolic center of capitalism looks like it is under siege. Security measures intended to protect against terrorism have resulted in an armed camp mentality that serves no one. Of course security is necessary, but…[a]s is, security barricades and vehicles are everywhere, giving the impression that Wall Street operates in a state of constant fear. The chaotic conditions are an embarrassment to the financial district and to New York as a whole…

oooooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo, Wall Street: SHAMED!  It’s all toooooo bad that this assessment actually makes it a fucking awesome and super bad ass place to perform your political poetry!  Where else, aside of occupying City Hall or a Bank of America, are you absolutely required to get into the revolutionary spirit?

Stand on the pedestal in front of George Washington on the site marking the 1st oath of office of the United States and tell everyone what they aren’t ready to hear!  (it’s what i did, anyway)
