A New York City Jewish bakery was vandalized on Friday afternoon, after someone spray-painted “Free Gaza” on the window, before smashing a window at a nearby bank.
The graffiti on the front window of Breads Bakery near Sixth Avenue and 49th Street appeared in bright-orange lettering.
Additional photos show a man sweeping up broken glass in front of the Simon & Schuster building, where another window, this time belonging to the First Republic Bank, appeared to have been smashed.
The vandals struck before several pro-Palestinian protests were expected to take place in the Big Apple.
The graffiti also reminded those passing by of the rising antisemitism in New York City, as well as around the world.
