    It is true that the incident happened in geographic Crown Heights.But to avoid panic your headline should not state Crown Heights if it did not happen in the chasidic part of Crown Heights.Not that it is a lesser crime just to avoid panic.

    This is Crown Heights. I am more upset that they call this a housing project. This is a Private Housing High Rise Apartment Building. People are quick to call this a project and it is not.

    These buildings were built and destroyed the quality of life in Crown Heights.
    Now all the new buildings being built are destroying the quality of life that the Jewish people restored with their blood sweat and tears…
