BROOKLYN - The NYPD is investigating a possible hate crime after several swastikas were discovered in Borough Park Tuesday afternoon. 

A total of six swastikas were drawn onto a metal railing on 49th Street with what appears to be a black marker. Neighbors say the hate symbols are especially unsettling because there are many Jews and even Holocaust survivors living in the quiet residential area.  

State Assemblyman Dov Hikind released a statement saying in part, "These things happen way too often and it's a sad commentary." 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
