All hell broke loose in New York City today, as hundreds of people supporting Occupy Wall Street marched through lower Manhattan's financial district toward the stock exchange.

"We need to prove we can exist anywhere," one protester told Reuters. "It's gone beyond a single neighborhood, it's really an idea."
