    St. Paul's just has to figure out how to turn the protests into a tourist attraction. The historic cathedral closed its doors after an encampment of Occupy Wall Street protesters reduced the number of tourists visiting the monument. Activists have been in the cathedral's square since Rev. Giles Fraser spoke out in support of the protesters and began working with them to set up bathrooms and clean-up teams. The last time the cathedral was closed was for four days in Sept. 1940, when an unexploded bomb was found near the site.
