The awful swastikas and "Go Trump" spray-painted onto playground equipment at a Brooklyn park have been painted over. A reader sent us the above photograph, adding, "The paint is still wet."

The park, Adam Yauch Park, is named after the late Beastie Boys member who grew up in neighborhood. The vandalism was found yesterday afternoon, and City Councilman Brad Lander tweeted, "Yet more hatred & anti-Semitism from Trump supporters. Swastikas on the playground equipment in Adam Yauch Park in BK Heights."

The incident is being investigated by the NYPD.

Today, Lander criticized President-elect Trump's complaints about Vice President-elect Mike Pence's evening at Hamilton:
