New York City Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway released a statement announcing that Brookfield Properties, the owner of Zuccotti Park, was “postponing” its planned 7 AM cleanup of the space. Holloway’s full statement, sent to the press at 6:18 AM, is below. It looks like mass arrests will be avoided this morning.

State Sen. Daniel Squadron, a Democrat who represents the area, immediately chimed in on Twitter with a response that gave a hint of the political pressure that may have been exerted on the property owner to back down: “Our late night requests to Brookfield are answered, they’re holding off.”
