NEW ROCHELLE -

A torn and tattered flag hanging outside the post office in the Quaker Ridge shopping center is drawing attention.

Merchants and shoppers say complaints to the post office were met by no action to replace the flag.

They told News 12 that it is embarrassing to see the American flag in such bad shape outside a government facility.

After News 12 contacted the post office, they decided to change the flag.
