On this month's edition of 219West, we're at Zuccotti Park with OWS protesters who are mad as hell. We talk with a Queens entrepreneur who's optimistic about the future and a bread and breakfast owner who's competing with the big boys. And, we learn how baby boutiques are bucking the trend in retail sales. Plus, we hear what Palestinian-Americans feel about Palestinian statehood and what comedians are saying about satire post 9/11.
