Is The Tribute Park Flag Missing?

The American flag at Tribute Park, the Rockaway 9/11 memorial site, has been missing for several weeks, leaving some locals wondering what happened.

The flag, however, normally flown inside the park on Beach Channel Drive and Beach 116 Street, has been removed by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation for the winter months.

"We've removed most of the flags throughout Rockaway for the winter season due to high winds along the water," Parks spokesperson Trish Bertuccio said. "Flags don't hold up for very long under these conditions and we will put them back around the end of March when the weather starts to improve."
