    Aren’t these places interested in people sending them things of interest?
    Some of these magazines/ sites/etc don’t even come up in a google search at all.

    Between all these kollelim there must be around 100+ chassidishe yungerleit doing this.
    Sounds a little crazy!
    Is in town so broke in providing for chassidishe bnei Torah that so many people are doing this?

    Obviously these kollelim are paying very well that someone looking to continue learning can do so comfortably.
    (I heard that the closer ones/ e.g. Baltimore pays in the 1500 range plus covered rent, and the farther ones/chicago in the 2000 range plus rent.
    Also from what I heard, in Chicago they help significantly those who choose to buy a house.)

    The question is that is this really their only option to stay in learning (without their wives working like a chicken without a head.) , or is there some other reason so many chassidishe yungerleit are doing this?

    Is this the latest trend by chassidim to go to OOT Kollelim?
    (Chicago ×2!! Baltimore LA Toronto Detroit Arizona.)
    What the incentive?

    So finally what are the downsides of living OOT?

    Obviously someone looking into Oot is probably not the boxed in type who must be totally surrounded by people who wear the exact same shoelace and even bought it at the same store .

    Totally agree with ujm.

    In Chicago you have all types of chassidish.
    Same in Baltimore/LA.
    Mix of Boro park Monsey Williamsburg.

    (Chabad is totally a brand of its own.)

    So are we left with Chicago, Baltimore, LA?

    Funny that all three have a Chassidishe Kollel!
    (Chicago has two!)

    Gadohadorah: So do you knock of Linden and staten Island?

    BTW There is also a small community in Indiana of about a dozen and a half Williamsburg families/anti vax common core. But that probably doesn’t count, as it is totally not an established community. Just living out there between the corn fields with no established mosed or other basic community infrastructure.

    Gadolhadorah: Not clear what you define as OOT.
    (Whats the difference between Passaic and Baltimore.)

    Anansahadi: Passaic? Good manners? Great! Chassidim? Really? Do you mean people with just a gartel? Or the type you would meet in BP?

    Ujm: I think this discussion is about OOT in the US.

    I think another big question is about mosdos chasidishe parents would feel comfortable sending to.
    For example in staten Island I think people send into BP.
    In Baltimore there is a very small chasidishe mosed.
    Bloomingberg is satmar
    Union city is zanz.
    .In Chicago there’s veitzner cheder which is in Yiddish and people feel comfortable sending to, and girls go to the regular beis Yaakov.

    Ujm: Yes these are the 3 supermarkets that the entire chicago shops at.
    But they are all very well stocked with heimish hasgocho items.

    3 most popular ones in Chicago are Jewel, Hungarian, and Kol tuv.

    (If you want you can also add the kosher section at Marianos.)

    Another factor a chosid would consider is access to food items with heimish hashgachos.
    (In Chicago for example there are 3 supermarkets that sell everything heimishe hashgochos.)

    Chicago has about 30+ chassidishe families/2 chassidishe kollelim, Yiddish cheder and a handful of chassidishe Rabbonim.
    Upside of living out of town:
    Things are generally quieter.
    Less of a social pressure cooker ie life isn’t a constant race to wear/say/do the EXACT same thing as everyone else etc etc / much more room for individuality.
