You’ve heard about the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters and how they’re camping out in our cities throughout the country. But did you ever wonder what type of living arrangements they had before this all began?
The Daily Coller investigated what type of homes these protesters reside at, based on information collected from public arrest records.

This was excerpted from the Daily Caller –
Some of the homes where “Occupy” arrestees reside, viewed through Google Maps and the Multiple Listing Service real estate database, are the definition of opulence.
New York: The pricey brownstone with the red door on a street where homes go for $850,000? It’s home to an impoverished Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 15. Caption and Image Credit: Daily Caller.
Texas: This mansion has five bedrooms and, from the looks of it, plenty of space for a drum circle. Its economically disadvantaged occupant was arrested while “occupying” Wall Street on October 5. Caption and Image Credit: Daily Caller
Using county assessors and online resources such as Zillow.com, The DC estimated property values and rents for 87 percent of the homes and 59 percent of the apartments listed in the arrest records.
Even in the nation’s currently depressed housing market, at least 95 of the protesters’ residences are worth approximately $500,000 or more. (RELATED SLIDESHOW: Opulent homes of the ’99 percent’)

For those poor 20 somethings that can’t afford to purchase a home. The Daily Coller discovered that the median monthly rent for those living in apartments whose information is readily available is $1,850.
I find this to be eye-opening information, one could easily project that this Occupy Movement is not what the protesters say it is about.
