I cover the waterfront. Recommended reading, links galore, plentiful screenshots, occasional commentary, line and column graphs, photographs, and color-coordinated PowerPoint slides. Not to mention Update City.
As you'll note in the these photos, the pink pussycat cap was the fashion statement of the day.
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Some were created with great care.
Others were quickly scrawled. (But, in this case, still worthy of note.)
Not wishing to remain in a standing-still position 20 minutes after the official noon starting ti, we decided to walk beyond the Lake Street/State Street intersection, where we assumed major gridlock was occuring. To avoid the crush of people, we headed to Langdon Street, which we followed until we reached North Frances, at which point we turned right. Once we passed the Graduate Hotel, we saw movement on State Street.
No auto traffic was allowed to cross the 8-block length of State Street from 10 a.m. (I'm guessing) until 2:30 or so. Here's a view of where West Johhson and North Henry cross State Street at the same point.
Spotting people on the rooftop of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, we decided to check out the view ourselves.

The best view, in my opinion, is from the 4th floor of the Wisconsin Historical Museum.
State Street is still thronged with people at 1:45.
