For years, on patriotic holidays somebody has been hanging flags from the power poles up and down Albany’s Broadway Street, but I don’t know who.
Whoever it is — individual or group — did so again this Memorial Day weekend, as always intended to be a somber occasion going back to the years after the Civil War.
Lots of people put out flags at their houses, of course. But it’s a special service to the community to do so for neighbors along several blocks of an entire street, and one or two side streets too.
If you know who has been doing this, keeping up what by now has become a tradition, let them know that people passing through appreciate it very much. (hh)
