a note about the mystery in new York City this evening. As we speak, the NYPD is on the hunt for whoever's responsible for this strange sight on top of the Brooklyn bridge this morning. White flags where American flags are supposed to be. They were in fact made from old glory bleached white. But the question is who switched them out and why? Speculation raging today over whether this is some sort of political statement or maybe just a strange art project. The police, however, are concerned with more concrete questions like how did anybody access this highly surveilled location and pull off such a high-risk, high-profile stunt? That said, we can rest assured, we are told that they do not believe this incident was connected in any way to any sort of terror threat. And you can stay with ABC news for all the latest developments on this mystery.
