Rabbi Aron Heineman, executive director of the Brookdale Senior Citizen Center, said he discovered the 3-foot-tall Nazi symbol and anti-Semitic message early Tuesday morning, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
"This is a huge swastika," said state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn. "It's not a little thing. It really stands out."
"This is a community of Holocaust survivors," said Hikind. "It makes you wonder what is going; this sickness."
The New York Police Department hate crimes task force is investigating the vandalism.
Hikind told the New York Post that swastikas were also found painted on a home Monday on 40th Street between 15th and 16th avenues.
