Protesters, this time dressed as swamp creatures, returned to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s headquarters in downtown New York on Tuesday, pledging to stay for the week as they demonstrate against the bank’s influence in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.

More than 60 people gathered outside of the building, chanted slogans and waved banners as police officers and bemused office workers looked on. Some participants wore monster masks or laid out sleeping bags on tarps along the wet and frigid sidewalk.
