The Brooklyn Bridge is considered a terrorist target, so New York has 24/7 security, and video surveillance.
Yesterday, somebody climbed up and replaced the huge American flags on top of the bridge with white flags. An insult to America? A political statement? Vandalism? These are 20’x11’ long flags – big!
To do this, someone blocked out the bridge lights using aluminum cooking pans, climb over or around locked gates, maneuver up ¼ mile of steel cable, climb a ladder to get onto the platform 273 feet up, unclip the steel fasteners that hold the flags and replace them, in windy conditions.
What do I think?
Uh, hey New York: your security sucks.
