Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY - The Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn was evacuated Thursday morning after receiving an emailed bomb threat. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio condemned the threat amid increasing antisemitism.


The threats were made via email to the building on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.


"An email, saying that there were three pipe bombs in the museum that would go off some time today," museum director Devorah Halberstan said.
