Pro-Palestinian protesters vandalized New York City’s flagship public library on Thanksgiving, causing damage that could cost up to $75,000 to repair.

The library, known for its iconic lion statues, was defaced with red handprints, stickers, and green spray paint during protests, including one during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“On Thanksgiving, individuals involved in a protest engaged in a shameful act of vandalism to the Library’s flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman building, a space devoted to the open exchange of ideas and intellectual debate,” New York Public Library spokeswoman Jennifer Fermino said.

“It is too early to say the costs of fixing the damages but the repair costs for all could be between 60k and 75k.”

The NYPD arrested 34 protesters, and the library’s spokeswoman stated that the repair costs could be between $60k and $75k.

The vandalism occurred amid budget cuts in New York City, impacting public services, including libraries.

“Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up,” NYC Mayor Eric Adams stated.
