The buildings tagged included Goldman Sachs’ headquarters and the Verizon Building, both on West Street, according to the New York Post.
In recent weeks, banners or images of the Israeli flag branded with a Nazi swastika instead of the Star of David have been seen in London, Paris and Sydney.
In June, one such banner also depicting former Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a Hitler mustache was removed from outside a New Jersey tobacco store, following local complaints.
