“99%” Projected Onto Side of Verizon Building


This is pretty amazing. Our Nick Pinto just tweeted out this picture of the Verizon Building near the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, where he’s covering the Occupy Wall Street march. The march includes workers from the Communications Workers of America, who were out on strike at Verizon and have been working without a contract for some time. We can’t imagine Verizon is very happy about having the CWA’s message seen on the side of their building. (We must admit, however, that the scary, largely windowless part of the building seems to have a better purpose now as a screen.)

Here’s another beautiful picture of the projection, when it had changed slightly to look even more like the Bat Signal, sent in from photographer Amber McLinn:
