Authorities have arrested a 14-year-old boy for allegedly toppling a menorah near Gracie Mansion.
WCBS-TV says the boy reportedly told authorities he knocked over the 100-pound menorah twice this month because he was bored.
It happened in Carl Schurz Park on the Upper East Side on Dec. 5 and Dec. 6.
The boy has been charged with criminal mischief and a hate crime.
The menorah was righted and re-lit on Dec. 7. Mayor Bill de Blasio who attended the ceremony said it was important to “stand up” for what is right and “show our resilience.”
