Swastikas and hate scrawled on an elementary school playground in Queens, Feb. 2019

Swastikas, Nazi symbols, the awful salute “Hail Hitler” (sic) – all were scrawled in chalk on the Rego Park Elementary School playground in Queens, NY on Friday.

Someone had spent quite a bit of time “decorating” the playground, in fact, with the swastikas sprinkled all around a tennis court and marching all along its boundaries.

The New York Police Department Hate Crimes Task Force said it would investigate the incident as a hate crime.

At least 37 anti-Semitic incidents have been reported to authorities in New York City thus far this year.
