“The report found an average one-bedroom apartment in Crown Heights and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens cost $1,940 and $1,742 last month, respectively.”

The most I know anyone paying for a 1 bedroom is between $1500-$1600. Not a single person I know in CROWN HEIGHTS is paying over $1600 for a one bedroom. And if people are it’s few. Not saying one bedrooms are affordable, but they are most definitely more between $1300-$1500.

Its true there are cheaper places to move. But its destroying a Jewish community (the Rebbe fought to build, when all others moved out). To those that are helping destroy it, not only should you not be treated as a equal in the community, rather you should be treated as a outcast. (I wont go so far to say that your kids should not be accepted in the community’s schools…) P.S.

I do not understand your comment at all. People are destroying Crown Heights by moving out and/or telling others to move out? What does that even mean? It’s not like every single person is going to leave. Plenty of people don’t know how to ever leave their CH bubble which is totally fine.

According to you, if I decide to move because I want to own a BIG house at an AFFORDABLE price, I am an outcast? Can you please explain?

To #5 Making rich people poor doesn't help poor people.

On the contrary (Aderabah Shilshul)! it usually hurts poor people. Has a poor person ever offered you a job?

Let’s not stand in the way of the Godly Invisible Hand that guides our free-market system.

The purpose you putting this info up is because ?

so?
Guest
so?

check your tuition bill, grocery bill, tax bill… a lot of things went up in price, especially things that become scarce. more people, same amount of space. costs more to run a building, labor to fix a building.

anyone with an issue about what it costs to live, can stop living, find somewhere cheaper, create a cheaper alternative to sell which can force by competition lower pricing…

Better solution is to ask Hashem for more money to come in our pockets

The Rabbonim should issue a psak halacha about how much rent is allowed to increase.

When the Rabbi was here the rents were not what they are today, the rents are really high, so people have to do what works for them and their family, and you also have tuition, food clothing, electricity, and etc.
