We gathered near the statue of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Confluence Park on the banks of the Chenango River that morning, but the crowd was so huge that we were all the way westward across the bridge to Front Street, and assembled across the street from the park, and on down both sides of Court Street. As a result, some people only had to walk a few blocks to get to this location: the steps of the Court House. I took this photo from the top of the stairs, at the west side of the building. In the background, behind the statue, is the Security Mutual building.
