Crown Heights, NY - Community Leaders Meet With the Deputy Mayor of New York City

Crown Heights community leaders met with the deputy mayor of New York City Edward Skyler, as well as Peter Simonetti the new inspector to the 71st Precinct along with several high ranking NYPD officers. The meeting, which took place this past Wednesday, was held at the home of Rabbi Chanina Hacohen Sperlin, a prominent member of the Vaad Hakohol. Most of the event was devoted to discussing the many details pertaining to hosting thousands of guests from all over the world who will be frequenting Crown Heights during Tishrei.

The meeting was quite unusual in the fact that all of the different community figures sat around one table, unified in their common goal to improve communication between the Crown Heights community and the local authorities.
