Again. Less than a week after an anti-Semitic display in Midwood, Brooklyn, where cars were set on fire, a vandal added a couple of letters to a sign at Avenue J station, which now reads "Avenue Jew." Sure, it sounds like a catchy Off Broadway play, but this is just another hate crime in the heavily Jewish area and will be treated as such. Police are investigating and the sign has been removed.

The reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for last week's hate crime has been raised to $56,000.
