BUDGET BACKLASH: Thousands Rally At City Hall
A massive budget backlash came to lower Manhattan on Thursday. Tens of thousands of New Yorkers marched on City Hall, rallying to stop proposed funding cuts. The rally cries of labor unions, community groups and families outside City Hall could be heard throughout lower Manhattan. Desperation for an economic lifeline brought out more than 50,000 people along several blocks of Broadway in a self-described "Rally For New York."
Simultaneous rallies were also coordinated in cities around the state on Thursday, including Albany, Buffalo and White Plains.
