A graffiti was noticed by an East Harlem man walking beside the base of the walkway bridge of Randall’s Island, which says “Kill Muslims” in black paint.
The picture of the graffiti was posted on Twitter by Kody Kirk racalling “We were surprised.”
“I’ve never seen anything like that since I’ve lived here,” he said.
The location by 103rd St. is heavily trafficked, he added.
“There’s people out there fishing, running and playing soccer,” he said.
Furthermore, an investigation is running by the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force.
A NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force representative contacted with Kirk and said that it is considered as a hate crime incident and it will be removed as soon as possible.
