Joint Statement On Swastika In Inwood Subway Station

On Monday night, January 2nd, 2017, members of the local Inwood community discovered swastikas had been drawn on an advertisement in the Dyckman Street A train station for an art exhibit at the Jewish Museum. This hate crime has since been reported to the NYPD, MTA and NYC Commission for Human Rights.

Uptown Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez and NYS Assemblywoman Carmen De La Rosa issued this joint statement in response to that hate crime:

“This hate crime is unacceptable–not only in our community but across our city, state and country. The past election has brought hatred and intolerance back into the light and we must combat it any time it rears its ugly head. We will not tolerate hate crimes in upper Manhattan. The diverse peoples of Washington Heights, Inwood and Marble Hill stand united against hate in all its forms and we as their representatives stand committed to supporting all efforts to catch those responsible for this act.”
