    1. And this is just the opposite; Litvaks need not apply.

  3. And I thought lakewood residents need housing for themselves not for out of town people

  5. Where does it say anything about the oak st. core? It mentions it's 10 minutes out of the existing Lakewood (whatever that means).

  8. 10 minutes to town??? Took me more like an hour this morning.
    Must be traffic will improve in southeast Lakewood as soon as we build more houses.... They agree with the current township. It's time for extreme change... Vote for anyone but...

  9. They strike once again. A foreign group of Chasidim shamelessly building houses exclusively for their own and no one else allowed. The very idea (starting with Belz) is incensing. And this concept was hatched by developers looking to raise prices; and they are succeeding. And then the same developers come to township meetings speaking of the "urgent need for housing" after they lock everyone out of many developments. All the frenzied development in town benefits no one. It only brings congestion\traffic, raises housing prices and benefits no one since the houses are not made available to them, only to "Ana"sh", which is code language for " no Litvaks allowed". PURE BIGOTRY!! Especially in a town whose backbone and foundation are BMG affiliated people.

    1. incensing? Are you sure that's a word?

    2. This is exactly why the non-shomer shabbos hate us. Because we build developments for ourselves and don;t let anyone else in. We're exclusive.

      Think deeply into the hatred you feel for chasidim, and then realize that this is exactly how non-shomer shabbos feel about all of us.

      Go ahead, tell me I'm crazy and that eisav sonei es yaakov no matter what we do. Keep your head in the sand.

  10. One of the members of the Masterplan density subcommittee said we need more density in Lakewood and he would love to have his children and grandchildren live in Lakewood. He is sefardi but it looks like only chasidim will be moving in.

  11. Yup, he is has got to be vaad approved, or builder endorsed. I believe that you are referring to Lankry. Sad, the amount of abuse in Lakewood is out of control. You have got to love it when they use these horrible excuses, approval is based on their grandchildren living next to them. Seriously!!!!

  12. When I grew up in Boro Park a very long time ago, the girls schools at least, were all a mixed crowd. We were classmates and friends with all types. Now each chassidus has its own school and no one gets to really know each other. Now, I Lakewood, have each group will have its own development and they really won't get to know one another! And then they'll accuse the original Lakewood people of bigotry and insularity when they're not so happy about these "developments", in both senses of the word.

  13. This is insane, more developments that do nothing but cause more headaches for those that have lived here for so long. We need strong leadership to change and enforce our zoning laws. No variances, we must keep what character our town has left.

  14. What you are saying is not accurate. My children recently bought in a new duplex development. The builder had the opportunity to sell the whole thing to chasidim but felt that it was right to offer housing for locals. 90 per cent of the buyers are children of old time locals . I heard he was approached by a group of Chasidim from NY and turned them away without even talking to them. So instead of throwing out the baby with the bathwater,first make sure that any new density is limited to locals. Obviously anybody can buy a house,but if you are asking for a variance for higher density it should be for children of locals not for anash from NY.

    1. maybe that is true about where your children bought but it's not true for everywhere. Oak St. corridor seems to be targetting chasidim from NY. One rebbe from Brooklyn already announced to his kehilla that he is moving there to be the rebbe of the neighborhood.

    2. "90% of the buyers are children of long old time locals" what percent of all Lakewood buyers are children of old time locals? No where near 90%, even if you exclude the Communities moving in from New York.

      So how did this particular development manage to get that high percentage of "children of old time locals". Very Strange.

  15. I specifically said that its true for some neighborhoods ,not all. It seems like parts of Oak street are for New Yorkers. But there are definitely a good number of new developments that specifically cater to existing move up buyers and children of long time locals. So don't paint every new development with the sane brush.

  16. While it is targeted / advertised for New Yorkers, if you want to move there, you can get in.

  17. So nice, no attacks on candidates in a whole discussion. What a treat to focus on the real issues in Lakewood. Let's keep this type of conversation going, and leave the personal attacks away.

  18. Its time to get used to the Fact That the Chasidim will Take over Lakewood. No Reason to Panic . There is Plenty of Room In Jackson until you hit Bensalem, Yardley and Philly Than from Bensalem to Cleveland Ohio There is enough enough room to Fit at Least Thirty Million Litvaks. You Can Sell your overcrowded Developments and Townhomes to Chasidim at a Premium Price and Purchase your self a 1 Family home with Property the size of a Football field for half the price of your home in Lakewood and you can get away from all the Gashmius and Freserie of Lakewood . So stop Complaining
