NEW YORK — Against the backdrop of a recent spike in antisemitic attacks across the US, Saba’s Pizza on the Upper East Side of Manhattan had a brick thrown at one of its windows overnight Sunday-Monday, according to a local group that supports kosher restaurants in New York City.
“Saba’s Upper East Side location was vandalized today, when a brick was thrown through the glass windows on the exterior of the restaurant,” says On Mondays We Eat Local co-founder Jonah Rosen in an email to members.
A patron of the restaurant posted a photo of the damaged window on Twitter.
