Governor Andrew Cuomo directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff today to honor the eight lives lost in Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan. Cuomo said in a statement that people know that their freedom and their democracy are targets of this hate and it is critical that everybody works as one in the face of this attack. The Governor also directed One World Trade Center to be lit in red, white and blue in honor of freedom and democracy.
