Swastikas Drawn In Brooklyn Days After Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre

A Brooklyn street was found vandalized with swastikas on Wednesday morning.

Sandy Maltzman, senior producer at CNBC, tweeted a photo of a home on her block in Brooklyn Heights, which was defaced with five sloppily drawn swastikas.

“Today was the day I woke up to swastikas on my beautiful block in Brooklyn Heights,” she wrote. “Praying they’re gone before all our children flood the street to celebrate Halloween tonight.”

The vandalism comes just days after a gunman killed 11 people at prayer in a synagogue in Pittsburgh. It has been identified as a hate crime.
