The police were friendly and supportive, they appreciated that the demonstrators were cooperative and cleaned up after themselves. There was a fair amount of press, mostly Journalism students or special interest freelancers but CBS sent over an actual crew and reporter.
Between the two locations we walked past the Newscorp (Fox) headquarters on Sixth Ave. There was a demonstration there by ANSWER (Hamas) that I did not linger to photograph. It was not large but was not contained within barricades as the Tea Party demonstration with a police permit was. The police at the Fox demonstration did not look happy.
