Hundreds came out in New York City on Monday to join the Occupy Wall Street protest, as it marked its first anniversary.

Protesters walked towards Wall Street with the aim of surrounding the New York Stock Exchange, but were blocked by police barricades. They gathered in Battery Park and in front of the National Museum of the American Indian to mark one year since protests began under the "Occupy Wall Street" banner.

They also congregated in the movement's symbolic headquarters, Zuccotti Park, though most of the park was closed off and there was heavy police presence.
