NYC Investigating Building with Nazi Imagery

Mayor Bill de Blasio says New York City is investigating allegations of tenant harassment at a condo building in Queens where Nazi imagery is being displayed.

“It is now more important than ever for New Yorkers to stand united as one city and reject discrimination and intolerance,” Mayor de Blasio said.

There are reports of Confederate imagery, swastikas and other hate symbols in the lobby of the building at 47-55 39th Place in Sunnyside.

“We will not let tenants in Sunnyside or across the five boroughs be intimidated or threatened for speaking out against hatred,” de Blasio said.

Last week a rally was held at the building to condemn the imagery.  It was led by Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer.

“The tenants of this Sunnyside condominium have been terrorized at the hands of this property manager for far too long,” Van Bramer said.
