Residents and public officials from a Brooklyn neighborhood in which cars were burned and swastikas left on a van took to the streets Sunday, marching against hatred and intolerance, The New York Times reported.

Marchers carried at least one Israeli flag and expressed shock that the incident took place in their neighborhood, which is home to a number of Holocaust survivors. Protesters from Occupy Wall Street also joined the march, according to the Times.

One marcher, New York State Senator Eric Adams said that the aggression of the hate crime that took place in the neighborhood should be matched "with the same amount of unity that we will not tolerate this and we will not accept this," the Times reported.
