WANTAGE, NJ (Sussex County) – New Jersey State Police are investigating anti-Semitic graffiti that was found on the outside of the Airport Diner Sunday morning.
The diner, which is located at 51 County Road 639, had swastikas and anti-Semitic language spray painted on the outside of the building and on an outside freezer.
A shed and the outdoor freezer outside were broken into and all of the food products and supplies the owner had inside were destroyed and/or thrown into the yard to spoil.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by Ashely Craig to help raise money to replace all of the food and materials lost, the screens, and will cover all paint and supplies used to remove the hate on the walls and windows.
“I created this GoFundMe for the owner of the Airport Diner, Frankie, who has been the owner of the Airport Diner for 12 years. He is a man of few words, but all he was able to say today is “Why?,” Craig said.
The building has since been painted and none of the hate is visible anymore, Craig said.
The GoFundMe page with a goal of $1,500, and close to $1,300 has already been raised as of Monday morning. To make a donation, click here.
Anyone with information is asked to call the New Jersey State Police, Sussex Barracks: 973-383-1515.
