Boston Flag Flies at Half Staff at New York City Hall
President Obama has ordered all US flags at half staff today in deference to the Boston Marathon bombing. The staff at New York’s City Hall took the additional step of lowering the New York City flag and raising the flag for the city of Boston.
Deputy Mayor Howie Wolfson posted the photo on Twitter.
We have lowered the NYC flag from in front of NYC Hall and have raised the Boston flag to half staff in its stead. twitter.com/howiewolf/stat…
