Senator Anna Kaplan has responded to the discovery of swastikas at multiple bathrooms at Cedar Creek Park.
Located in Seaford, Cedar Creek Park is just down the road from Wantagh County Park. This incident is not without precedent in the area, unfortunately - twice this year, antisemitic graffiti was discovered at the nearby Forest City Park Pond.
"I'm horrified by the latest discovery of antisemitic vandalism on Long Island, and I'm disgusted that once again it was found at a public park where families and children should be able to enjoy themselves without being confronted with vile displays of hatred," Kaplan said. "We deserve to live in communities free from this garbage."
Kaplan thanked Nassau County police for investigating the matter, and called on County Executive Bruce Blakeman to take proactive steps against this sort of occurrence.
Nassau police are investigating this as a bias incident.
