Police have launched a hate crime
investigation after fi nding a swastika
plastered on a tree outside a Bay Ridge
home on June 27.
The vandals are believed to have
spray painted the swastika at around 1
am in front of a home on 85th street between
Fourth and Fifth avenues, a police
spokesperson told Brooklyn Paper.
Police said there were no offi cial
suspects as of Monday morning, but local
pols said in statements that surveillance
footage showed a group of teens as
“Greatly upset that a swastika was
found in Bay Ridge & even more disturbed
that video shows it was done by
young teens,” wrote state Sen. Andrew
Gounardes, who represents a swath of
southern Brooklyn that includes Bay
Ridge, on Twitter.
The area’s councilman, Justin Brannan,
said he immediately had the anti-
Semitic marking removed as soon as
it came to his attention — and argued
that no matter the age of the vandalizers,
their use of a swastika needs to be
“I had it removed as soon as it was
brought to my attention. Based on
video footage, it looks like it was done
by young teens,” Brannan said on Facebook.
“The swastika is a symbol of anti
Semitism, hatred, mass murder, and
terror and its appearance must be taken
seriously even if it was the work of some
young kids. Spray painting a swastika
is not a joke or some silly prank.”
The pol credited local power washing
company Eco Clean Industries
for ridding the tree of the vandalism
promptly and free of charge.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced
he is having the swastika investigated
as a hate crime on the state level in a
Monday morning statement, and commended
the local community for the
swift removal of the image.
“I am disgusted to learn that a swastika
was spray-painted on a tree in Bay
Ridge, and I thank the members of the
local community for doing all of us a
service and removing it from sight,” the
governor said. “These ignorant anti-Semitic
hate crimes against our Jewish
brothers and sisters are an attack on all
Hate crimes are up nearly 123 percent

year-to-date as of June 20, opposed to 24
