    UPDATE: All streets that were closed overnight in the vicinity of City Hall have re-opened.

    This just in from the Philadelphia police: Due to the Occupy eviction situation, the following streets will remain closed until further notice:

    1400 block of JFK
    Southbound Broad Street from Arch to Chestnut
    1500 block of Market Street
