Swastika Scrawled on Crown Heights Sidewalk
An Anti Semitic vandal spray-painted a swastika – the symbol of Aryan superiority used infamously by Nazi Germany – with the word “good” underneath it on Union St. between Schenectady and Utica Aves. in Crown Heights.
The incident occurred sometime over Yomtov. A non-Jewish resident of Crown Heights noticed the hate graffiti and photographed it, then alerted the police to the crime.
The police are investigating the incident, and have indicated they are familiar with the rogue ‘street artist.’ The offensive scrawl has since been covered over with white paint.
