I would like to suggest that the NYC OWS group seriously consider moving to the Winter Garden Atrium in the World Financial Center 2 blocks from its current location.
It's a huge glass-vaulted pavilion 10 stories high, one vast open area filled with palm trees.
It would provide warmth and shelter for the winter months, and more space than Zuccotti Park. It is also owned by the same company that owns Zuccotti.
As a symbol of "Wall Street", it would be just as effective, since the World Financial Center is filled with firms like American Express, Merrill Lynch, Deloitte & Touche, Infinium Capital Management, etc.
I imagine a kind of "flash mob" takeover, around 5pm when everyone is swarming around there anyway leaving work. Suddenly, hundreds of people plop down on the floor, and boom, it is occupied...
