On March 22, 2005 Newsday reported, "despite some petty vandalism, the construction of a Sikh temple in Richmond Hill continues with enthusiasm. Sikhs in the community are rebuilding a temple, known as a gurdwara, at 118th Street in Richmond Hill to replace one that burned down on the same site three years ago because of a gas leak. Recently, the temporary Sikh worship hall and office that sits on the site has been spray-painted with swastikas, dredging up terrible memories of discrimination against Sikhs in recent years."
