Happened to me this morning

I was walking on Brooklyn at about 8:25 am. This man was just standing close to the corner of Maple and Brooklyn (almost sure it was that corner) I was concerned right away when I saw him just standing there,hands in pockets doing nothing but staring. I then passed by, he asked me hey what’s up and I ignored and continued walking on a much quicker pace. I was terrified. He probably then saw there was a school on Lefferts and found that more interesting and moved there…

Omg

I think we need to stop depending on police and take action. If I would have been there I would have for sure looked for someone to be by my side (another parent/male) and said something!! This is disgusting and completely unacceptable all our schools need to have security! Our children are innocent and someone exposing themself to them could be traumatizing. I know because it happened to me a 27 year old married woman! In the train! Packed with people! When I think about it I feel so disgusted! But I feel good I did speak for myself and… Read more »

Terrible news

Need to have a patrol of shmira, or police every day now till he is gone.
It’s scary – all buses drop off need to be under staff supervision

Chevra, Lets all get involved
October 13, 2021 4:22 pm

Due to the very obvious dangerous increase in Crime affecting Crown Heights, those that can get involved to help out should. All our Young Chevra, Older Mature Working Bocherim & Yungerleit in Crown Heights should be highly encouraged to step up to the plate, to get involved a little & to be active to an extent in helping their community. Older Mature Working Bocherim & Yungerlait should really consider joining either Shmira or Shomrim. We can’t always rely on other people in our community to step up to the plate to helpout, But to actually lead by example and volunteer yourself… Read more »

Move the Kingsboro Homeless Shelters to Rikers
October 14, 2021 8:01 pm

Does anyone have any thoughts on how many mentally ill and homeless are going to be moved in to the new 900 apartments coming to 681 Clarkson, sponsored by Breaking Ground Homeless shelter ?

Haven't a clue of # of homeless moving in...
October 17, 2021 5:57 pm

however I would like to know: How many of the big shots who approved construction of a building for the homeless and people with mental problems in a neighborhood full of children actually live in this neighborhood. Here’s a far better idea: Check the demographics of the various neighborhoods in the city. There are far, far fewer kids living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan than in Crown Heights/East Flatbush. The Upper East Side is a neighborhood of bleeding heart liberals who vote progressive no matter who the candidate is. How about insisting that they put their real estate… Read more »
