New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has butted heads with the Occupy Wall Street protesters at times, but now he’s defending them, The Hill reports.

New York hasn’t experienced "the kinds of things you see in other cities where people are running in the streets and destroying commerce," he told MSNBC Wednesday.

Granted, the mayor isn’t jumping for joy over the movement. "We watch very carefully, and they generally do not break the law," he said. "I would prefer that we open up the park and begin to let people come through. The park . . . is not necessarily designed for sleeping."

At this point, protesters should be allowed to stay, Bloomberg said. "They say, 'We don't know what we want but we want it now. But that's just as good a way of saying it as anything . . . They express it by camping out and yelling and screaming."
