This flag, ripped and hanging upside down, sits at the Rockaway Beach branch post office. Flying a flag upside down traditionally means danger or distress, but even though the office was once slated for closing, it will remain open and it is the flag that is in distress, not the office. Local politicians contacted by The Wave said that they would provide new flags for the government facilities as soon as possible. 32p2.jpg
