Residents of a Brooklyn, New York neighborhood where several cars were burned and others were painted with swastikas and the letters “KKK” say they’re stunned.
Police are looking into the anti-Semitic graffiti and arson, which was discovered along Ocean Parkway near Avenue I in Midwood, a predominantly Jewish area.
“It’s unbelievable someone could get away with this in the middle of Ocean Parkway,” said Baruch Levy, who lives nearby.
Ellen Shalom is a friend of one family that lives directly in front of where the crimes occurred.
“It’s just horrible,” she said.
A number of benches were also covered with swastikas and other hate graffiti, officials said.
Mayor Bloomberg said in a statement that the hate crimes task force “is actively investigating the twisted person or people” involved.”
