As presumably the only member of the Coffee Room who has been in Kensington, London in the past 24 hours, I suppose I can try enlighten you. But I haven’t been to the knockoff American version.
It’s quite an upscale area, with some of the most expensive property prices anywhere in the world. And like many parts of London, there are also poorer areas, particularly from immigrant communities. The area has been in the news recently due to the Grenfell Tower tragedy, where a council tower block caught fire and, exacerbated by poor building standards, led to the death of over eighty people, mainly immigrants. I actually saw the tower last night, and the sight is truly shocking.August 7, 2017 9:11 am at 9:11 am #1333405Avram in MDParticipant
There’s a Kensington in Maryland too, but there’s no frum community in it.August 7, 2017 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #1333666GadolhadorahParticipant

Perhaps you should wake up and smell the Chulent….there has been a slow migration of frum families west from the silver spring/wheaton areas over towards Connecticut/Knowles/Howard Avenues in the past several years…most importantly, there has been a regular minyan meeting in one of the small buildings off Antique Row on Howard Avenue since February…..August 7, 2017 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1333731
It seems that the Torah emanating from Kensington, Brooklyn, NYC is having a major effect in spreading to Kensington’s elsewhere!August 7, 2017 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1333745Avram in MDParticipant
