Picture of the Day

With construction rapidly progressing toward completion, a mural was being painted on the side of the building, located on East New York Avenue near Schenectady Avenue, depicting a Hassidic man standing with a black woman on a subway.

The building at 824 East New York Avenue will contain some 66 apartments averaging 781 square feet, and is being constructed by Aview Builders, a Hassidic owned and Williamsburg based developer.

    So what is the satmar developer showing with this mural ? Will there be even one Jew or even a black person in this luxury apartment?

      Sorry to but 781 is by no means ‘luxury’! It may still be expensive but luxury it ain’t. I don’t care how many granite and stainless steel goes in there.

    Inappropriate ! Are the Jews of crown heights responsible for the gentrification of crown heights? How do u explain to our African neighbors that we are suffering as much as they are? That Hasidic Williamsburg landlords don’t care about us any more than they care about them . Sadly they think we are protected . We are suffering too and hashem Yerachem on our young couples .

    Since when is Satmar chassidic? Myuchosim to the Baal Shem Tov? Ha! Satmar = Eirev Rav

    They added the word love to the mural with the chassis and shvartze! This is extremely inappropriate and I wish someone would take action! That would never fly in Williamsburg! I’m disgusted!

    What is the point to this mural?
    Would never fly in Williamsburg.
    Shame on the satmar developer for allowing this.

    How many people can live comfortably in less than 800 square feet? This doesn’t seem family friendly to me.

      Hello, wake up… It’s not at all meant for families. Almost none of the new apt. are, except Fishers but those are expensive for many. If your waiting for a miracle, then look to the other side of the hospital or out of town.
