Man Caught Wearing Swastika Chain On New York Subway

It’s not only in Charlottesville that neo-Nazis are feeling emboldened to walk around sporting their hate in the light of day.

A concerned citizen snapped a photo Monday of a creep in Queens wearing a Nazi necklace - with a swastika on it - inside the Queensborough Plaza station of the New York City subway.

“I was disgusted, but I couldn’t believe what I saw, so I walked back and forth past him a couple of times to make sure that’s what it was and there started snapping pictures,” said Chris Lenti, who posted the image to Instagram.

New York City has seen a severe spike in anti-Semitic incidents since the election last November of President Donald Trump - with hate symbols popping up in the city’s parks, train stations and buildings.
