NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Anti-Semitic graffiti has been found at the Holliswood Hospital in Queens. It's the second time the site has been targeted.

The hospital is on Palermo Street surrounded by homes, some of which are valued at upwards of $1 million. The swastikas were spraypainted on the building, which is surrounded by a fence.

Assemblyman David Weprin said a hate crime against one is a hate crime against all.

"It's always been a very diverse neighborhood and we all get along here," he said.

Estelle Weiner said the swastika graffiti isn't the only form of hatred.

"My husband was sitting on the front porch like a hlaf a block from here the other day and some teenage boys walked by and yelled out a curse to Jews," she said.

The NYPD's hate crimes unit is investigating.
