The man who hung a swastika banner in the front window of his Newton Booth home to prevent the next-door neighbors from renting their house, took the flag down Monday.

"People should be spending their time and resources on that, not my feud with the neighbors," he said.

He wouldn't say if the flag has been permanently stored.
