The Brooklyn Bridge was closed for hours Saturday evening as police arrested roughly 700 anti-Wall Street protesters who marched onto the Brooklyn-bound roadway. Police shackled protesters wrists behind their backs with plastic restraints before loading them onto buses for processing at numerous precincts. Hundreds more of the “Occupy Wall Street” marchers took the legal Brooklyn Bridge walkway and gathered for a rally in Cadman Plaza Park. Others headed to Brooklyn Bridge Park.
