Are the stones which are being removed, are stones which the Rebbe walked upon them?! Or are they newer ones? ( If not, these stones are holy and should be kept)

…the Rebbe also walked on the sidewalks of Crown Heights. Should the same question come up every time they’re repaved?

yes

Actually – yes! If there are places where one knows for sure that the Rebbe was actually there its a zechus to keep

And your source for all this is… what, exactly?

The Rebbeim lived in Lubavitch for over 100 years. Never was there any notion that we have to take along some of the dirt or stones or wood of their houses.

Thousands of Rishonim and Acharonim, tzaddikim whose every word is dear and sacred to us, lived across the length and breadth of Europe and North Africa and the Middle East. Do we save every stone from those places because Rashi or Rambam or Rabbeinu Tam walked on them?

Why would it be dangerous?

Are they replacing *some* tiles w poured concrete?

So they are replacing *some* tiles with poured concrete?
If that is the final look, it’s more suitable for the back of some warehouse, not for historic plaza where thousands of people are gathering to celebrate. I hope I’m wrong and they will make it look presentable, but from the pictures it looks very worrisome.

Agree

Why was this done? Change tiles with concrete? Ugly!
