Where else should I go on Evacuation Day. 226 years ago today the British formally left New York City. The flag atop the pole on this site was probably the last thing they saw as they sailed away.
The pole is not 226 years old, it is the 6 pole to be on that same spot. Each pole got a plaque. When they installed a new pole they moved the old plaques to it.
Below is a little video I took of the Flag and the pole.
