A noose and anti-Semitic graffiti were found in Brooklyn's Fort Greene Park earlier this week, authorities said.
The Parks Department confirmed it "immediately" removed the hateful items after they were discovered on the Myrtle Avenue side of the park Monday. The noose was hanging from a tree; the graffiti was on a nearby tree stump.
According to the Daily News, which first reported the findings, anti-Semitic graffiti was also found in the park two weeks ago on a tree not far from where the noose was located this week.
The graffiti read, "They should have gotten rid of you when they had the chance. Hitler,” according to the News.
The NYPD is investigating.
