APRIL 15, 2010 - CHICAGO - DALEY PLAZA - From 20 stories up, atop the First United Methodist Church across the street, a view of the Tax Day Tea Party in downtown Chicago. These photos were taken by me at 12:55 p.m.. My own estimate of the total crowd, from Noon until the end at 2:00 p.m., was over 3,000 people. WBBM 780 AM, a CBS owned-and-operated station, says the crowd was "about 1,000" people. Wrong. In the photos immediately below, I show a detail of this one. In the third photo down, I counted 140 people in a small area and marked them. Keep in mind that many of the attendees came over during their lunch breaks but left to go back to work. During the two hours of the official event, hundreds of people came and went. To count the static crowd at any point in time does not give an accurate number.
