MIDWOOD - One month after a hate crime in Midwood, the neighborhood's Jewish residents are still waiting for police to make a single arrest. Several cars were set on fire, and anti-Semitic messages were spray painted on several benches on Ocean Parkway near Avenue I. Many people living in the area say they still fear walking the streets, and that similar crimes across the borough are reason for concern. Police say the investigation is ongoing, and that there is no new information since fingerprints were found on beer bottles left at the scene.
