hcrFollowing reports that a swastika was painted on a residential building in Crown Heights yesterday evening, Public Advocate Letitia James released the following statement:

“This is not simply vandalism, but a hate crime. On the eve of Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day – this senseless and offensive act is even more painful. As we prepare to remember and honor those who lost their lives during the Holocaust, and honor those who survived – we should not have to be distracted by bigotry and intolerance.

“Unfortunately, in this City and across the country, we have seen an alarming increase in hate crimes of all kinds. I am calling for increased vigilance by New Yorkers to report hate crimes against any and all communities.”
