A Queens assemblywoman received disturbing, racially charged messages since announcing a bill to rename Donald J. Trump State Park to honor the protester mowed down by a Nazi sympathizer in Charlottesville, police sources told The Post.

Nily Rozic, a Democrat who represents neighborhoods in the central and northeastern section of the borough, was recently sent three postcards with phrases related to white nationalism, including “alt right,” “1488,” “white race” and “goyim,” the sources said.

The term “1488” is a combination of white supremacist symbols – 14 for the “14 words” slogan, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” and 88, which stands for “Heil Hitler.” The eighth letter of the alphabet is H.

“Goyim” is a Hebrew term for non-Jews.

The creepy postcards — which also included the word “kike,” an ethnic slur for a Jewish person, and said “Tel Aviv should be nuked” — were sent between Sept. 7-12.

The messages were signed “1488.”

NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.

Last week, Rozic announced legislation to change Donald J. Trump State Park to Heather D. Heyer State Park after the 32-year-old paralegal who was killed during a white power rally in Virginia last month.

The undeveloped 436-acre park, which was closed in 2010, is located along the Westchester and Putnam county lines.

Trump purchased the land in the 1990s for $2 million and donated it to the state in 1996.

Rozic didn’t immediately return a message.
