CROWN HEIGHTS -

Residents in Brooklyn are concerned after two nooses were discovered in the last week.

The first noose was found hanging from a tree along Eastern Parkway near the Brooklyn Museum. The second noose was discovered Thursday at a library in Bed-Stuy.

A spokesperson for the library says the Brooklyn Public Library is a welcoming space for all New Yorkers and that officials continue to be diligent in preserving an atmosphere of inclusivity and safety.

Residents are reminded of the hate a noose represents and say the discovery is very disturbing.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incidents.
