MANHATTAN — St. Patrick’s Cathedral was targeted on Saturday by vandals who scrawled profanities on the outside of the iconic Fifth Avenue landmark.
Photos of the graffiti show the words “F–k,” “BLM,” and “NYPDK” written in red or black spray paint.
Matthew Breslin, who identifies himself as a seminarian for the Archdiocese of New York, posted a photo of the graffiti on Saturday.
“Protestors (sic) vandalized St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC today. ‘Father forgive them…’” he tweeted.
It’s unclear what time the graffiti occurred. The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for information.
