WANTAGH - Authorities are investigating the appearance of swastikas sprayed on an overpass above the Wantagh State Parkway.

Students at nearby Wantagh High School say they can't help but notice the swastikas - three of them spray painted in red above a footbridge just steps from the school.

"I think probably the people that do this don't really know how evil and despicable that sign stands for. I think that's a disgrace - but it all goes back to how you're brought up," says Kevin Kilgallin.
