NEW YORK — Officials on Friday postponed a planned clean-up of the downtown Manhattan park where anti-Wall Street protesters have set up camp that raised concerns of a possible showdown with authorities.
Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said the private owner of Zuccotti Park, Brookfield Office Properties, decided late on Thursday to delay the cleaning, which had been slated to begin at 7 a.m.

Protesters, who have occupied the publicly accessible park since mid-September, feared the cleaning would be an attempt to shut down the movement that has sparked solidarity protests in more than 1,400 cities and plans for global rallies on Saturday in 71 countries, according to Occupy Together and United for Global Change.

Roughly 1,000 protesters were on hand early on Friday morning at the park, where many had been up all night busily cleaning it themselves.
