NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A Hasidic man alleges he was the victim of  anti-Semitic harassment while riding a bus in Brooklyn.

The United Jewish Organization of Williamsburg says the man was able to catch up to a B57 bus after it had initially passed him by, and as he went in, the driver covered her face and said "go in, measles."

Mayor Bill de Blasio has condemned the alleged incident and says that the MTA is cooperating with the investigation.
