Occupy Wall Street Protesters Prepare For Winter (VIDEO)


NEW YORK -- Zuccotti Park is surrounded by skyscrapers, which means that it doesn't get a lot of sunlight.

And Saturday's snowstorm brought several cases of hypothermia to the Occupy Wall Street protesters, who have been camped out in the park since mid-September. But the protesters say they are both determined and prepared to outlast the impending cold.

On Wednesday, Bill Dobbs of Occupy Wall Street’s public relations working group gave The Huffington Post a private tour of Zuccotti Park's new storage facility, provided by the United Federation of Teachers and housed in an old Amalgamated Bank.

Watch our original video, above, to see how the Occupy Wall Street protesters are planning to live outside on Zuccotti Park's cold, stone ground all winter long.

CORRECTION: Bill Dobbs was initially identified as the "press relations chief," which is not his title.
