Was it hundreds from Conn? or Thousands? at the ?#?PeoplesClimateMarch?? The Associated Press, and therefore just about every newspaper in the state, ran the headline, courtesy of The AP, “Hundreds head from Conn. to NYC for climate march.” Other news organizations followed suit, like CBS reporting “Thousands to attend climate march.”

Having ridden the train with others, both going (on Saturday) and coming home Sunday, I think hundreds is a very low average estimate. Thousands of people from the state were in those trains. I spoke with people who boarded trains close to 7 a.m. Many others filled the trains later in the morning and day.
