Three swastikas were discovered on a Brooklyn sidewalk near Maimonides Medical Center on the corner of 49th Street and 10th Avenue in Borough Park. The police contacted me immediately and the NYPD Hate Crimes task force is investigating the matter.

I don’t want to give extra attention to the criminals who are painting swastikas in our neighborhood, but neither should our residents fear that these incidents are going unchallenged or will go unpunished. It’s just a matter of time before a witness or surveillance camera leads us to the culprits and then there will be a heavy price to pay for these serial hate crimes. There are many cameras in place and many more are coming.
