How does Lakewood, New York compare to Lakewood, New Jersey?
lakewood has already become brooklyn NJ
From the traffic to the crazy drivers to the housing issues & all the fancy stores & restauants that don’t belong in a torah community like Lakewood & Rav Aharon Kotler ZT”L would never have approved
Lakewood, NJ is more like Monsey. It is very different than Brooklynv and has nothing close to the density and traffic of Brooklyn.
There are many differences between Lakewood and Monsey, btw. They both have lots of traffic since the roads were not built to accommodate the population explosion. Kein Yirbu!
Come live in Yerushalayim 🙂
Lakewood NY is near Jamestown and doesn’t have a Jewish community
the drivers & the beeping that goes on in lakewood now come straight from the people who moved there from brooklyn & now beep away in Lakewood thus they cause original lakewooders to also beep away & make it a big chillul Hashem.
if everyone would just drive with patience-as it is not as squashed & narrow street as brooklyn-& with safety then it would be such a pleasure to drive through lakewood & the goyim would not cause so much anti-semitsm, Which has just started alot recently in the last few years since lakewood started overcrowding with density. when lakewood had room, the neighbors were all friendly with the goyish neighbors & there was no hatred… but theres just a limit we can go before we have pushed it too far & cause hatred & anti-semitism. Lakewood frum community blew that 10 years ago when the ystarted building like crazy with causing major density & not caring about the communities “quality of life” thus affecting the goyim also & bringing it to hatred & anti-semitsm. GOYIM NEED TO REATHE & LIVE TOO
Anti-Semitism is not caused by beeping. There is a big difference between hating someone and having a complaint about them.
