NEW YORK -- On Thursday morning, it was widely reported in the media that Occupy Wall Street was planning to shut down New York City's subway system. The protesters planned to stage rallies in subway stations across the five boroughs, and many feared that further crowding in the subways during busy afternoon hours would anger the city's commuters and do little to affect the 1 percent.

The Huffington Post went to Harlem's 125th street station to see one of the protests, and found that commuters -- instead of being irritated -- largely supported the movement.
