New York Public Library waves the Terrible Towel

On Thursday morning, a Terrible Towel was hoisted high in front of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, as a result of a bet between the mayors of Pittsburgh and New York on the outcome of the Steelers/Jets game. The location was chosen because Pittsburgh industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie funded the New York Public Library branch system. There is a video of the mayor hanging the towel on YouTube.
