In every generation, there are dirtbags.

A creep drew swastikas all over Marine Park on April 25. The public display of ignorance was particularly grievous because it came during the festival of Passover, when Jews commemorate deliverance from oppression, according to a civil rights group.

“It’s deeply concerning, particularly as Jews are in the midst of celebrating their freedom on the Passover holiday, to see swastikas scrawled out on numerous locations in the same neighborho­od,” said Anti-Defamation League regional director Evan Bernstein.

The bigot scrawled the symbol of hate on a home’s front door, a residential gate, two garbage can lids, and a utility box — all along Avenue S between E. 35th and Ryder streets — at 4:20 am, police said.

The suspect stands between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, and he was last seen wearing dark clothing and a dark backpack.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
