This is pretty unfortunate and unnecessary

How the Italians decorate

In Bay ridge, what’s wrong with the way it was?

Old stones

What was done with all the old stones ? Would’ve been nice to distribute to chabad houses to place in their buildings

look closely

this is not on the walkway, it’s on the sidewalk.

Um..

We couldn’t afford the numbers ‘770’ in a nice font, with a round zero?

Stop with the negativity

Really really beautiful, and obviously they can’t do a round 0 because then the bricks wouldn’t be able to fit in properly

It can be. With the right initiative and expertise. Lol

mismatched brick tone
September 8, 2022 7:10 pm

Nice idea but brick color should have been darker to match the building.

Wow!

When something is too nice here comes the ball rolling of complaints, from all the comments above. Me I say one word: wow!👍

I don’t think ppl are upset or negative about this at all.

I think there are some opposition being that for 212 + years we know (as the Rebbe was adamant to always referring to 770 as Mikdash Mi’aat, from the Nosie Hador)
As a well known fact since the Baal Hatanya….
As the Rebbe said many times…
טשעפעט ניט מיט געטליכקייט.
מיש ניט אריין אין בית הרב
I’m sure you understand !!!

So there’s no opposition or negativity. Rather this (maybe) is inappropriate.

Ugly, color is way off, and numbers are not not classy.

It looks beautiful
September 8, 2022 7:57 pm

Its upto date and the work was done well!

nicely done
September 8, 2022 8:25 pm

In case you did not pass by to see the work, the sidewalk is now wired to melt snow. A very nice improvement.

Beautiful!

Yasher koach to whoever is behind all this recent fixing up and beautifying 770!

Copies
September 8, 2022 9:24 pm

Now all the 770 copies around the world will have to add it too…

progress
September 8, 2022 10:21 pm

but pls don’t forgot the past, the bricks much be preserved and used for good

KnH!

Love the new additions!!

*making it clear that this is the SIDEWALK OFF of the actual building. Look again, it may seem like the steps and part of the original property but NO it’s just the square side walk on the street…chap?

So those saying preserve the bricks or etc, nothing was removed from the original property from 770. They just removed the SIDEWALK and added this gorgeous piece of art! Mazel tov!

Not Accurate

What you say is not accurate. Everything from the sidewalk all the way up to the entrance door was replaced, and the door refurbished. See the pictures in the earlier articles.

But it kinda looks like Soviet poster art

How can we change and try to modernise this holy place!!! This is not a tourist attraction r”l. This is the beis rabeinu sh’babavel.
As with all that is holy, we do not deviate from the way it has been.
Why try to fit in? Can’t we just stay the same?
