Cars parked on Kingston Avenue between Empire Boulevard were targeted sometime Monday night and their windows were blown out. The bus stop at Kingston and Montgomery saw one of its glass panals shattered as well.

A resident, who shared photos of the widespread damage, told CrownHeights.info “it looks like 15 cars were vandalized,” adding that it was possibly done with a BB or pellet gun.

It appears that the damage was limited to two blocks of the neighborhoods main shopping corridor, from Empire to Crown.

It is unclear if police reports were filed in connection with these incidents.

Volunteers from Crown Heights Shomrim began searching for surveillance video in hopes of identifying a suspect, “if anyone has access to surveillance video or has any information regarding this incident please contact our hotline at 718-774-3333,” a Shomrim coordinator said.

    THIS is the price you have to pay to be in an up and coming neighborhood. The answer to this is to get rid of your car and use some car service or mass transit, which is pretty excellent AND put up steel gates with some chemical on them to resist graffiti.

    I am pretty sure (I could be wrong) that the people who did the crime here have nothing to do with the neighborhood changing and that they and their family have lived here for years.

    This type of massive car vandalism happened in Long Island on the east end a copy of years ago in a gentle neighborhood.
    If you want to combat the crime against person’s, property you need more surveillance cameras and cops walking the streets. That’s a budget item which elected officials have to allocate funds for.
    It’s time for public meeting on Jewish activism with voting information and how 5000 Jewish votes in the democratic primary can be the swing vote between the two current black democratic kingpins in town ( Eric Adams and Uma Clark.
    The battle is not between black politicians but between the individual Jew and himself, on whether he / has faith and an interest in fighting for his community by taking the time to vote in Democratic local primaries.
