Occupiers rang in the New Year on Saturday night with a game of tug-of-war with the NYPD at Zuccotti Park. Instead of rope, however, activists and police officers struggled over the metal barricades that have surrounded the area since late September. Dawn on Sunday saw the barriers replaced and the park closed to the public.
