JUMP CUT
A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

 

 

Notes

1. This is approximately three blocks south of Zuccotti Park, the center of New York’s Occupy Movement in the fall of 2011. [return to essay]

2. For a useful website on these events, see “The Hard Hat Riots: An Online History Project,”
http://chnm.gmu.edu/hardhats/homepage.html.
The site contains newspaper articles, photos, and study questions for analyzing the events. It was compiled by history students at New York University.

3. One conservative blogger has wondered why Martin Scorcese hasn’t made a film about the hard hat riots. Indeed.

4. See, in particular, Barbara Ehrenreich’s The Fear of Falling: The Inner Life of the Middle Class.” New York: HarperCollins, 1983.
