Like little stars.
Some segments of the media remian fixated on the idea that Occupy Wall Street is made up entirely of hippies and dreadlocked anarchist types. In reality, the group here has always been more diverse than that, and the range of people participating seems to be broadening by the day.
Liberty Square now has, for example, a designated play area to allow parents of young children to come and show their support.
Kate Fermoile of Brooklyn came with her 13-month old, Lucy, to bring some supplies and join the movement.
“I’ve been wondering when somthing like this was going to happen,” she says.
Lucy was taking advantage of the crayons and face paint spread out on tarps on the ground in the play area.
“She certainly doesn’t understand what’s going on,” says Fermoile. “But it’s something we’ll be able to tell her about when she learns about it in school later on.”
Someone even set up a website, parentsforoccupywallst.com. Its slogan: “creating change now for our children’s future.”
The group is planning a sleepover at the park for parents and children Frday night.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
