New York City.
Saturday - Sunday October 15-16, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, Lower Manhattan.
With prayers from the weekly Multi-Faith Service, led by the Rev. Michael Ellick of Judson Memorial Church.
Sunday also marked the Jewish feast of Sukkot, the Feast of Booths (or Tabernacles), when, traditionally, observant Jews build an outdoor structure called a sukkah where they eat and sometimes sleep during the week-long festival.
