Raise High the Blood Covered Flag

On Flushing's Main Street a group of Shiites celebrate Muharram, which often involves bloody self-flagellation in other parts of the world. Here there were a bunch of shirtless guys in the middle of a closed-off section of Main Street pounding on their own chests. Go Queens!
