Dutch treat

Some thief swiped the donation box out of the Lefferts Historic Home inside Prospect Park on June 19, getting $200 and depressing generations of kids who have learned the positive parts of American history inside the 17th-century structure.

Cops say that the thief entered the restored Dutch farmhouse, just off Flatbush Avenue near Empire Boulevard, shortly after it opened for the day, and grabbed the cash box near the door.

The cracked-open box was found about 150 feet away — minus the $200 it had held.

The incident is a horrifying reminder that the modern world can sometimes infect Brooklyn’s glorious Dutch past.

Where: 452 Flatbush Ave.
