Instead he was left feeling pretty meh about the whole thing.

Despite having recently expressed sympathy for Occupy Wall Street, Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn't seem too impressed with Thursday's "Day of Action," in which protesters celebrated the movement's two month anniversary with a series of large rallies across New York City...Bloomberg downplayed the protests at a Thursday news conference, before tens of thousands of protesters had marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, saying "Occupy Wall Street had predicted on their website that tens of thousands would be participating in today's protests, but there have been far fewer— and so far they have caused what can accurately be described as minimal disruptions to our city."
