Early this morning, Greenpoint residents were shocked when they saw anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled across the sidewalk along Newel Street.
Two large swastikas with arrows pointing in different directions were spray painted in black along Newel Street, near the Norman Avenue intersection.
Police received multiple calls about the hateful graffiti and reported to the scene this afternoon. The incident is under investigation as officers from the 94th Precinct search for security camera footage that could lead to identifying the culprit.
Greenpoint has been no stranger to anti-semitic graffiti in recent months.
In January, a series of stickers were posted displaying Nazi symbols and messages of white supremacy, prompting Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Council Member Stephen Levin, Assembly Member Joseph Lentol, State Senator Julia Salazar and Representative Carolyn Maloney to release a joint statement condemning the bigoted acts.
A few months later, on March 14, a vandal scrawled “Die, Jew Bitch!” with a swastika drawn below on a poster promoting the book “The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg: American Icon” at the Nassau Avenue G train station.
Police are asking the public who find hateful graffiti to not remove it, but rather leave it intact and report it to the police so that a full investigation can be conducted.
Ah yes our champagne socialists and they’re concerns. How nice. Yeah just think who the suspect is ?? One of they’re own to bring trouble dissension and hate.
instead of power washing it off they used spray paint to cover over it lazy ass 94th
need a special prosecutor to find connection between Trump and Polish population of Greenpoint
Was he lying?
While this type of vile behavior has happened throughout the history of our country from time to time, it has grown to epidemic proportions with the bigot, dog whistler Trump in the WH. This is not a conservative vs. liberal thing. Never in modern memory have we have a president in the WH who aids and abets these things with his dog whistles
Not to hard to figure out. Greenpoint is Polish and Newel str 100% Polish.
The less Polish Greenpoint is the more anti Semitic it becomes … i would look around and draw more reasonable conclusions
