NYPD investigating swastikas in Borough Park playground
The New York Police Department (NYPD) is investigating two swastikas drawn in a playground in the heavily-Jewish neighbourhood of Borough Park in Brooklyn.
The symbols were found on a structure at Gravesend Park.
New York City Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein said: “Despicable hateful symbols will not be tolerated in our neighbourhoods, nor any other neighbourhood for that matter. Those responsible will be found and brought to justice. I want to thank Boro Park Shomrim for their swift response to this latest antisemitic incident.”
Assemblyman David Schwartz said that swastikas represent “humanity’s darkest chapter in history. It’s outrageous that this is what we have to deal with in a neighbourhood with so many Holocaust survivors.”
