The Port Authority will be flying the world’s largest free-flying flag again at the George Washington Bridge. The flag measures 90 feet by 60 feet and is said to weigh 450 pounds. The flag only flies during special occasions – much like how the bridge gets lit up – and will be displayed from 7:15 AM to 1:15 PM on 9/11.
