85 Broad Being Evacuated?

A friend downtown tells us the House of Goldman appears to be in the midst of an evacuation, with "security types directing people to the side of the building, but only 2 police cruisers...no sirens or anything." No idea what's up, though it's not necessarily a panic situation. It could just be that they needed to make room for the money, which is being brought in tonight in twenty dollar denominations for everyone to strip down and roll around in for ten minutes tomorrow morning, just to get a taste of what life could be like come bonus time if they keep it up (if they don't keep it up they'll be rolling around in the sweat of a noted Italian-American reporter, accrued from a day-long shoot of his self-funded exercise video, taped, without permission, on the GS trading floor). Presumably there's nothing to see here, but if you know what's going on, Maxine, get in touch. In related news, this lady says Goldman owes us all money and if they're not going to hand it over we're just gonna have to go get it ourselves.
Update: Still unclear what's happening, though apparently "it looks like a drill," not specifically having anything to do with fire but more like a what-to-do in the very likely event M. Waters storms the building before Labor Day, when guards are down and they're least suspecting it.

Wilbur glanced down at her watch. 12:13. Usually, she hated when people were late and, under normal circumstances, this would have gone beyond the point of what she'd tolerate. Hell, make her wait more than 5 or 6 minutes and you were ensuring you'd be receiving a series of irate texts inquiring sharply as to "WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU??????!!???" and threatening "If you're not here in 30 seconds I'm leaving." But today she was practically willing Tom to continue making her wait under the bodega awning. Just another minute. Just one more minute.
