Swastika stickers found on Goldman Sachs and Verizon buildings in NYC

A pair of vandals defaced two high-profile Battery Park City buildings — including Goldman Sachs global headquarters — with twisted stickers of the Israeli flag with a swastika in it, in what cops are now investigating as a possible hate crime, cops and police sources said.

The incident occurred around 10:40 p.m. Thursday at the Wall Street titan’s West Street headquarters between Vesey and Murray streets, the NYPD confirmed.

The vandals also defaced nearby 140 West St., the Verizon Building, in the same manner, an NYPD spokesman said on Saturday afternoon.

Police are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime after Israeli flags with swastikas were found at the building as well as Goldman Sachs’ HQ.

Video surveillance shows a man, about 30 years old, 5-foot-8, 150 pounds with “curly/wavy” hair and a woman scrawling graffiti on the 44-story Goldman Sachs building, and then running eastbound, the police sources said.

The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the vandalism, police said.
