Opulent homes of ‘the 99 percent’ [SLIDESHOW]

Representatives of “the 99 percent” have been camping out in lower Manhattan to protest economic inequality since late September, but the riches on display at some of their home addresses clearly came from “1 percent” families.

We searched Google Maps and the real estate Multiple Listing Service for the home addresses police collected during the arrests of less-than-law-abiding New York City “occupiers,” and found dream homes aplenty. These opulent houses include in-ground swimming pools, manicured lawns, and golf course access.

Frustrated with the rich? Tell a protester. Isn’t life rough?

  • Texas: This mansion has five bedrooms and, from the looks of it, plenty of space for a drum circle. Its economically disadvantaged occupant was arrested while "occupying" Wall Street on October 5.
  • New Jersey: This quaint 3,800-square-foot manse sits on a quiet cul-de-sac, and it's valued at nearly $500,000. The poverty-stricken Occupy Wall Street protester who lives here was arrested on October 5.
  • Maryland: This $1.4 million home in a quiet suburb of Washington, DC is home to an Occupy Wall Street activist arrested on October 5. It has a tree-filled lot, nearly 3,000 square feet of space, a swimming pool and a half-acre to roam on. What more could a destitute protester want?
  • California: Just a half-hour's drive from Berkeley, this victorian boasts 3 fireplaces, granite countertops and a wet bar. It's a 5,000-square-foot anti-capitalist's dream -- at least for one cash-strapped Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 1.
  • District of Columbia: An Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 1 -- presumably penniless and from a blue-collar family -- lives in this $850,000 home in the nation's capital.
  • Virginia.: Four bedrooms? Check. Great schools? Check. Golf-cart path running behind the house? Check. This dismal hovel is occupied by a Wall Street "occupier" arrested on October 1.
  • Wisconsin: For just $600,000, this sprawling brick home near Lake Michigan gives you a private backyard full of trees, ferns, and flowers. Inside there's a natural fireplace, sunroom, crown molding, a bay window, and a wall of closets upstairs. It's hard to believe an Occupy Wall Street protester, arrested on October 1, would want to leave all this behind to tussle with New York City police.
  • Massachusetts: $560,000 clearly doesn't buy what it used to. This bungalow only has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and the lot is just 1.3 acres. But for one Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 1, it will just have to do.
  • New York: The slow housing market hasn't hurt this 1935-era home's value. It's worth $535,000, but that includes the satellite dishes and the brick castle wall (with pillars). On September 24, a resident of this old-world manor was arrested while protesting against capitalism with Occupy Wall Street.
  • New York: The pricey brownstone with the red door on a street where homes go for $850,000? It's home to an impoverished Occupy Wall Street protester arrested on October 15.
