Damaged flagpole closes block of Chestnut Street

Chestnut Street is now closed at 7th because of the leaning flagpole. The flag has been removed and it looks like it could be hours or longer before Chestnut is reopened. It’s the block just west of Independence Hall that’s closed to traffic. traffic being detoured north onto 7th. The building with the problem flagpole — the Public Ledger Building — houses the Center City District headquarters. Bike cops typically muster there on the sidewalk — but not today. By late morning a crane arrived to begin the tricky task of taking down the pole.
