    Activists and Crown Heights community organizations, have proposed an idea to create a permanent plaza outside of 770 Eastern Parkway.


    As the Crown Heights Jewish community keeps on growing, safety concerns are growing as well.

    In a letter addressed to the city, the NYPD explains:

    “For the past thirty years the New York City Police Department, specifically the 71st Precinct has dedicated tens of thousands of hours of man power to provide appropriate security to this location. Year after year as the Lubavitch population grows, 770 Eastern Parkway hosts approximately one hundred thousand visitors from around the world looking to better educate themselves regarding their religion.

    “770 creates a unique and challenging situation for the police department to protect and serve”

    Community leaders have therefore proposed an idea to the city, which will eliminate these concerns.

    “The idea consists of merging the service lane – through the island – to the first lane of the parkway” says Mendel Mintz, one of the organizers.

    This will create a large plaza area, protected by anti-ramming barriers, in front of 770. The Plaza will allow the community to gather, without closing traffic on the service lane.

    Local community organizations, who have written support letters in support of the Plaza, include: Community Board 9, Educational Institute Oholei Torah, Tzivos Hashem, the Beis Din of Crown Heights, the Vaad Hakohl, and Crown Heights Bikur Cholim.

    Organizers are in the midst of gaining support from our elected officials, both city, and state.

    “It won’t happen overnight” says Rabbi Eli Cohen of the CHJCC, “but if all goes well, we can expect construction to begin by 2020.

    The Crown Heights community is encouraged to share their ideas and suggestions, by emailing Info@770Plaza.com.

    2. I think it’s a good step in the process of expanding 770. But the most important thing is that the chasidim who failed to get out of the shchuna and go on shlichus should understand that right now a lot of potential progress due to the stalemate attitude of both sides of the chabad cold war…
