Confederate Flags Removed From Windows Of Alphabet City Building

The Flags, which drew an angry response this week and one person who threw rocks at the windows of the East Eighth Street building, had been hanging for years according to neighbors.

The windows on top floor of the building at 403 East Eighth Street were covered with a tarp on Friday afternoon.

May said that the building manager knocked on her door this week and told her that they were going to cover the windows with a tarp.

At least one anonymous neighbor was upset to see the tarp hung over the windows, telling Gothamist that he thought it was "silencing of speech."

Paul Bakija, the guitarist for the punk band Reagan Youth, lives across the street from the building, and told Gothamist that the tarp was "better than looking at a bright, lit-up Confederate Flag."
