People in that neighborhood didn't start out racist or anti Semitic; I don't care if you’re Black, White, green or purple. As long as I am paying the rent on time and have a current lease, I think I should receive some consideration when it comes to basic services and repairs in a timely manner. The topic was deregulation, and I picked a neighborhood… I could have easily picked a white or black neighborhood and your statement would have been the same.
My point is that with the current political situation in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the way it is and the current changes in housing, people and new ownership in this neighborhood you can see (In your face) families being displaced, abuse by new owners and how a group of landlords changed the market price of a neighborhood to suit their greed for profit.
I hope this wins my argument and sets you straight.
: I have some friends in Williamsburg, nice neighborhood.
: And I can see why you were "forced out" of the neighborhood. People with racist attitudes such as yourself who make jealous, demeaning statements towards Jews or other ethnic groups do tend to get on the nerves of others. I'd say "good riddance".
: And what connection, you ask, do I have to the Hasidic community ? None whatsoever. But I admire them, inasmuch as I understand they have bought, renovated and restored dozens of abandoned houses in Brooklyn. Sounds like they are really care about the neighborhood they live in. And if their moving in means that people such as yourself will have to move on, well ... goodbye and good riddance.
: : Funny that you mentioned Williamsburg, Brooklyn… I once lived there… Grew up there, and was forced out financially and physically. I know who you are… Figuratively speaking of course…
: : Anybody interested in seeing landlord’s price gouge, go to the Housing Courts in Downtown Brooklyn.
: : Read the recent articles in the New York Times and the Daily News, search for the South Side and Williamsburg (oh and the Hasidum). Block busting for you own kind is illegal and just not right.
: : Your very bad, real bad.
