I like the plaza next to the Brooklyn museum , there not residential area but u know it’s also a public place where people can use as they want it … because we share Labor Day parade , I’m doubt that they will not use the space for showing more then it’s shown in the street but in from t of 770 mamash ….
make this zone pedestrian for Tishrej only

770 Eastern Parkway, also known as “770”, is the street address of the central headquarters of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement, located on Eastern Parkway in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York, in the United States

It attracts tens of thousands of visitors from around the world every year.

I hear they are standing behind the project!

They are the ones to say straight out how much we need this in Crown Heights….

They have been making Plaza’s all over but everyone forgot about Crown Heights!

What do the people who live on the block have to say about this project?

Everything MODERN...
August 1, 2018 7:52 am

…Like the NY telephone book was made in smaller print. Do we like it? – No. – But it’s modern. The fact is, that not all things “modern” are better. Modern can be a step the other way too. Are we sure that this plaza will be good for “Kan tziva Hashem es habrocha”? Our community must pay attention to this concept – and think and imagine the scenario – and we should be told publicly of the plans and pictures (put it up again) – as the environs of “770” are sacrosanct and gashmius plans even relating to its… Read more »

Has to be thought out again and again
August 1, 2018 7:41 am

There are loopholes that sometimes can come up – because NOW we may see only SOME aspects of this space being created… but ALL the aspects should be considered – both gashmius and ruchnius. We really must be happy with it afterwards and not have any unforseen negative results (for whatever reason chas v shalom. It should be planned ALSO with the ruchnius of the place (future area) taken into consideration – must consult some “sophisticated” mainstream mashpiim also, whoever they are – as to the plan. After all – it’s not only about a goodlooking and hopefully, convenient plaza… Read more »

Agree with #3 that this is not thought out properly
August 1, 2018 4:15 am

This needs to be better thought out. I am afraid it will backfire badly creating a public place in front of 770. Also while its being constructed it will cause problems.
So many other things are needed more like cheaper housing

Great news

what actually will be build and where?.

Who is the well dressed man?
August 1, 2018 12:21 am

Quite an amazing idea, I hope the traffic people won’t stop it.

July 31, 2018 10:50 pm

Help and make CH safe and secure, Protect our children who run on the streets daily, protect our families and loved ones.

One great step in the right direction.

This is an awesome idea!
July 31, 2018 10:47 pm

Wow wow!

You have my full support!!
This is something we needed for years… So glad it’s actually happening!

How long are we dealing with?
July 31, 2018 10:46 pm

3 years? 5 years?

What’s the projected timeline – if approved?

July 31, 2018 10:44 pm

Busses? Chassunos?

Other concerns?
Are they being addressed?

Powerful idea!
July 31, 2018 10:42 pm

This is great!

Rather use these talents to fix up the appaling condition of770. It’s time for new leadership in the shul. Not a huge plaza outside

To number 3
July 31, 2018 9:46 pm

I agree. We need to look at the much bigger picture and see what The community needs. We can lose other much more important projects just because this was done and the answer is we did enough for your community. Look in shulchan aruch hilchos yom tov regarding people gathering together. It is forbidden.

July 31, 2018 9:18 pm

Dumb idea. It dilutes the memory of what was 770, will be commercialized, be used for all sorts of nefarious activities. We got bigger problems. And to those bochurim who feel they need to fix things, know that the Rebbe wanted you to sit and learn. Leave the fixing to the adults.

Mica, you are an example!
July 31, 2018 9:04 pm

A great business woman, a leader in the community, tznius and classy! I wish more woman would follow your example!

Not sure
July 31, 2018 8:55 pm

In theory that sounds like a great idea, it’s true that there is a need for crowd control On yomim tovim etc. However we need to bring cars through this area, chuppahs, simchas at the Jcm, simchas at 770, dropping off seniors etc. I think there might be more aggravation than good.

Just noticing
July 31, 2018 8:49 pm

I dont know enough details of the pros and cons of this proposed safety space, however for living in such a neighborhood, i havent seen a cop on the streets in ages, that might contribute to safety, no?

You are such an inspiration. You are a true powerhouse. If someone can move mountains – it’s you.

Mendel Mintz is the top powerhouse in Crown Heights. Very impressed with this young bochur.

July 31, 2018 6:58 pm

Okay. I truly hope smarter and calmer heads prevail. Although this is great for PR and Thmul. But results can be terrible. At least one reason NOT to do it, is if you understand that this plaza will have to be a “public” place which means it will be available for anyone to use, even the pro eruv pepole will be able to demonstrate, never mind the possibility of a grand stand for the Labor Day Parade. Need I go on? I think the Askonim who were at this meeting will do better service if they focus on housing and… Read more »

Wow looks like it's actually moving forward!
July 31, 2018 5:24 pm

Hope this plan pulls through!

It’s something our community can really benefit from tremendously!
It’s such a vital thing to have for security as well.
Hatzlacha in making this happen.

Great idea....SAFETY!!!!!
