Maybe DeBlasio can visit crown heights and help make more affordable housing here in crown heights?

Why not in Crown Heights?

Why not in Crown Heights?

Why only in Boro park and Williamsburg do they have such projects
Yet nothing in CH?
All the development going on in CH is for Non Jews.
Why does our community not try to build something to help out the familys who are Nebach suffering?

Wake up CH council

When it comes to housing in Boro Park Williamsburg and Flatbush they have affordable housing going up FOR the community but Crown Heights has ZERO going on. Can our community council wake up and start working

I too am wondering why these projects are only going on in borough park and williamsburg?
Is there a credible reason? I’m sure our community council would not be against such housing? Would they?

The Community Council has been dead for years. Their mandate expired 6 years ago. It’s time for new elections.

The land was transferred to SBCO twelve years ago by Mayor Bloomberg. The subsidies are from the state. It took 12 years to build 36 homes.

This is nothing new. It’s dog eat dog in ch. there is no community in ch for years now. Keep paying 2k for holes in the wall and forget about helping those who are struggling.

However, sadly, the community council couldn’t care less about the community they are representing, they use they’re positions to enriches themselves at the expense of the neediest families in town,

For affordable housing. The problem is it goes thru the council, who divert the funds for their own use. Sadly we suffer for their greed

I rarely post comments, but..
Look at Williamsburg & Boro Park, they have all these beutifull programs being run by their vaad and community councils. Yes, CH has many wonderful organizations as well, but the actual community council and “official” askanim, do almost nothing, when they are from the only ones who can get funds from the city and federal government.
So they are either inept at best, or much worse..
There should be new elections and the swamp should be drained.

Why dont we have this in CH

Why dont we have this in CH

I dont understand. We have Chabad reps who have “ins” with ppl in local gov’t etc–look at all the articles COL has posted in past with pics of council and other comm. leaders posing proudly with memers of local govt so… either theyre not utilizing these connections, in which case, why bother maintaining them and advertising them etc? Obv, this is not whats happening–if there was, why bother in the first place? Clearly, they do have connections, and they are using them, but not to help the community that they claim to represent (unelected, i might add) so the question… Read more »
