WILLIAMSBURG - At least five swastikas were found spray-painted on homes along Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg Tuesday, leaving residents disgusted at what they say is a disturbing trend.

"The last couple of weeks, the last couple of months, actually the last year we had a rise in the neighborhood of such a thing," says resident Isaac Friedman.

City Councilman Bill De Blasio says he's also disgusted that hate crimes have become so prevalent throughout Brooklyn. He says he'll work with the police to catch whoever is responsible.
