“Oh wow.”

The exclamation of surprise and awe could be heard echoing across the basketball courts next to PS 232 in Lindenwood on Tuesday evening as police, fire and EMT workers unfurled the national 9/11 flags during the 106th Precinct’s Night Out Against Crime events.

The flag, which was found in tatters near Ground Zero after the Sept. 11 attacks, traveled the country visiting the sites of national tragedies including tornado-ravaged Greensburg, Kan. and Columbine High School. Attendees listened to Firefighter Jimmy Sands of Engine 331 in Howard Beach tell the history of the flag.

The Night Out Against Crime events in  the schoolyard of Lindenwood’s PS 232 included ice cream and Mamita’s Ices, whose warehouse is on Liberty Avenue and 101st Street, steps from the 106th Precinct.
