Two white flags appeared atop the Brooklyn Bridge this morning, and no one knows why. From the New York Times:

Online speculation aside, there were few indications of why or how the flags had come to wave atop one of New York City’s most storied landmarks. Photos seemed to show that at least one bore stripes under its coat of white, suggesting it was an American flag that had been whitewashed.

The regular American flags are now back up.

If this turns out to be viral marketing I am going to dump garbage on someone's head.
