    Default Mysterious White Flags Fly on Brooklyn Bridge

    The mysterious appearance of two large white flags flying over the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City this morning has the city scrambling to figure out why they were put there.



    The New York City Police Department responded to the scene and was investigating the matter.

    Officials were in the process of taking down the white flags late this morning.

    "This has nothing to do with a film shoot," said Dean McCann, Executive Director of NYC's Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting.

    The white flags are in the same place where American flags typically fly atop the bridge.

    It was unclear why they were there and who put them there, authorities said.

    The bridge connects Manhattan to Brooklyn over the East River, and has its base just a few blocks from City Hall and police headquarters in lower Manhattan.

    The span is run by the city's Department of Transportation.

    As of 10:30 a.m., the bridge was still open to pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

    The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the country's oldest suspension bridges, dating back to 1883, and is also a National Historic Landmark.

    White flags on top of Brooklyn Bridge hoisted by pro-bicycling group to symbolize bike path’s ‘surrender’ to pedestrians

    The NYPD started removing the white flags at 11 a.m. Tuesday — but it remained unclear what happened to the missing American flags or how the thieves scaled the towers, which are under constant surveillance

    I thought they were there because the country is being surrendered to central and south America.

    speaking of American flags, I was at a theme park up here today and noticed 3 different people (not at all within the same group) wearing American capes. Is this some new fashion thing that i haven't noticed until today?

    No.

    They are clearly retarded.

    Or they are going to a soccer game.

    I assume you mean American flag capes, not American capes? It's been around a while, but I feel like it took off this year during the world cup.

    It's also against US flag code, but I would bet anyone wearing one doesn't even know there is a flag code.

    I'm guessing this is either A) a statement about Israel and Hamas or B) a statement about race in America (like White privilege in the US).
