NYU Occupation - occupiers allowed to stay the night

Word from is that NYU Administration is "allowing" the occupiers to stay the night. I say "allowing" because at this point NYU isn't in a position to allow or disallow anything - hundreds of students both in and outside the building are the ones in control right now.

NYU Admins have probably done the first smart thing (for them) during this entire situation. The tried and true method for defusing student/admin confrontations is letting things fizzle. NYU escalated severely, and as a result got almost a thousand students and outside sympathizers to rally to the occupiers' cause.
