Antisemitic hate notes left at a Starbucks in Manhattan on July 29, 2022

New York’s Finest are searching for a man who used a hammer on Friday to smash windows at a Starbucks in Manhattan after posted antisemitic notes filled with hate on the building.

The notes said: “Get out of my country” and “Ban Israel” and “Move away from Egypt.”

All of the hateful epithets were written in capital block letters, with what appeared to have been a black pen.

The incident took place at the Starbucks on 9th Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

That same day, detectives from the NYPD Warrant Squad arrested a man in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, on charges of aggravated harassment as a hate crime.

The charges stem from the man’s antisemitic threats and finally, his physical attack on a group of Jews on the corner of Utica Avenue and Lincoln Place.

Just two days earlier, on July 27, a Jewish man was attacked on the NYC subway. The attack took place just a few hours after the Americans Against Antisemitism organization released a report on the effectiveness – or lack thereof – of the city’s district attorneys in prosecuting violent criminals.

Earlier this month (July 6) the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force made an arrest in the theft of a yarmulka from a six-year-old child at 11 o’clock in the morning, in front of 1005 Bedford Avenue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, a Hassidic stronghold.
