Swastika found inside Williamsburg building

BROOKLYN - Residents of a Williamsburg building woke up to find a message of hate scrawled inside an elevator.

The swastika was discovered at 70 Clymer St. in the Wythe Houses by a tenant just before midnight last night.

The NYPD is on the scene investigating, but sources say there are no cameras inside the elevators, giving officers little to work with.

Last year, a similar incident occurred at 111 Clymer St. Residents say the scrawling is another example why they need security cameras in Williamsburg.
