After two high-profile security breaches at the Brooklyn Bridge, the city has taken action.
The NYPD has negotiated with the attorneys for the German artists who claim to have swapped the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge, in order to get the American flags back, police sources told CBS 2.
Police were investigating Wednesday evening after pro-Palestinian groups unfurled a political protest flag on the span of the Manhattan Bridge.
Mischa Leinkauf and Matthias Wermke told the New York Times they were behind the stunt to celebrate “the beauty of public space.”
The NYPD says there is no truth to the claim made by marijuana activist The Rev. Bud Green.
The breach prompted a massive increase in security at the bridge.
A massive police presence surrounded the Brooklyn Bridge Wednesday – even with counterterrorism officers walking the beat – a day after unidentified vandals breached the security of the iconic span to replace the American flags with white flags.
