Queens School and Residential Complex Vandalized with Nazi Symbols

Two swastikas were found in separate locations in Rego Park and Forest Hills Tuesday, lawmakers said.

One of the antisemitic illustrations was found at Stephen A. Halsey JHS 157, located at 102nd St., near 63rd Drive, lawmakers said, while the other was found at 110-11 Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills.

“Our local leaders and fellow neighbors will never become complacent in the face of such vile acts of hate,” reads a joint statement by Rep. Grace Meng, Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi, Council Member Lynn Schulman, and Senators Leroy Comrie and Joe Addabbo.

“We remain strong in supporting one another and condemn these acts of antisemitism and cowardice for what they are,” said the statement.

Police reported the incident to lawmakers at about 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday. The graffiti in Forest Hills was removed as of Tuesday afternoon, a spokesperson for Hevesi confirmed.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident, lawmakers said.
