Anam Farooqui, 24, lies down inside the "box castle." Farooqui works for a FedEx retail store that used to also ship for UPS. Since they canceled their account, the store was left with hundreds of UPS boxes. Farooqui took as many as he could carry to Zuccotti Plaza and used the adhesive strips "like brick and mortar" to block the wind and rain and make for "a more comfortable space that would have been a total waste at his store." However, dwellings are prohibited in Zuccotti Plaza and Farooqui was later asked to disassemble the structure by the police. (Photos: Bryan Derballa/
