    Anyone live in or have any information on available options for a Chassidish family to move out of town?
    What are the benefits? Disadvantages?
    By out of town I mean out of NY/NJ area.

    I would add Cleveland and possibly Chicago to the list….it all depends on what you mean by a Chassidish comunity.. There are rebbeles all over the U.S. who dress in chassidish lvush and give themselves a title (e.g. the South Beach Rebbe”) but its not what I think the oP has in mind. Likewise, there are enclaves of established chassidus living in towns distant from their rebbe.

    “By out of town I mean out of NY/NJ area..””

    I stretched it a bit to include Cleveland (where there are small green sprouts of chassidus in a desert of Litvish hashkafah). It also has the Browns, Indians and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
    Antwerp is WOOT (Waaaaay out of town).

    Baltimore is the closest and most developed Chassidishe community 3-4 hour drive from the New York metropolitan area. 4+ Chassidishe Shula. Men’s Mikvaos. Chassidishe Cheder, Kollel and Girls School. Chassidishe Shechita, poskim and Rabbonim, etc.

    If you mean Chassidish communities that ALSO have at least one chassidish school the list gets a lot smaller.

    Baltimore has Rabbi Eichenstein, Rabbi Taubs shul, Goldbergers, Sternhills, Hertzbergs and the Chassidishe Kollel. The Kollel has 31 Avreichim. Did I mention it’s drivable to and from Baltimore same day (unlike Chicago, Detroit or anywhere else)? Strong Eruv everyone holds of. And we had measles cases too so you know it’s Chassidish.

    Baltimore? “No human being would want to live there.” (D.J. Trump, not to be confused with any rappers named D.J.)

    The vast majority of Baltimore is Litvish / Yeshivish. BH everyone gets along very nicely. Ir HaShalom. Who cares what the President says – he says all sorts of crazy things.

    Los Angeles has a large chassidish kollel as well as the LA Chedee which is chassidish (rabbeim teach in Yiddish) and all the other benefits as well. And get along very nicely with other groups. Plus the weather!

    The Baltimore Jewish community is known to have the most well rounded, level headed, extremely sweet people. The community genuinely cares for each other. Also, Baltimore isn’t exactly “out of town”, we have tons and tons of shuls and restaurants! There’s a brand new chassidish community that recently moved in and they’re the nicest people. Anybody that talks badly about Baltimore clearly hasn’t been to Baltimore or met anyone from there. They’re one of the most genuine communities in the entire country.

    Trump was referring to downtown Baltimore, not the Jewish community (Pikesville).

    How Chassidish are you?

    Are you OK with a Nusach Sefard shul where the Rov wears a streimel, throws apples on Shmini Atzeres, and speaks Yiddish but there are perhaps only two or three bekishes in the whole shul? Or do you need a full-on Rebbe with Chassidim following every word, cheder, Yeshiva, girls school, zilber schtock, and tisches and all that?

    Since we’re discussing Baltimore, there are several shuls that fit the first description. The second description is something you don’t really find outside of NY/NJ with the exception of Tosh in Motreal. Even Baltimore has a “Chassidishe Kollel” but there’s no Rebbe and it’s socially isolated from the rest of the frum community.

    linden nj has 60 families / mt kisco in white plains area / kasho town in bedford hills / and even a pupa town – but your q is very vague and there are so many variables beginning on WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO MOVE OUT? a chasidish family has to have a major reason or reasons to live ir hakodesh metro area

    Joseph mentioned Sullivan county, but to be specific Monticello has a fledgling Chasidish community and R’ Yoely Roth (Breslov) is establishing a community in Liberty, NY. Visnitz has a “shtetl” in Kiamesha Lake, NY otherwise known as Gibbers.

    The Catskills mountains have great potential as there is a lot of Jewish infrastructure.

    Meir: Perhaps better to frame your question as to why a frum yid with a young family would want to STAY in the NYC metro area.

    To add to GH,

    Especially with taxes through the wazoo

    Crime rising especially anti Semitic crime

    Decriminalization of Crimea along with no bail

    You don’t even get school vouchers
