Was it always like that ? I read some old articles that seemed to imply that it was only for residents.

Separate sections but not enforced. Anybody can go to the park, I live in Brooklyn and have been there many times with my kids. It's a great park for Nyc standards

I got there at 11, the gate on the road was closed.
Came back at 12, the gate was open.

All i can say is any 1 who passes monroe, or goes to wood bury commons, MUST go to this park.(its tremendous)
2 zip lines, and excellent ropes even for older children.
There are 2 colors of everything, Blue then red an pink.
The guard came, but didn't say boo to us.
No 1 was there at 1st, but even when some men came they didn't say anything to my wife(on the blue side)

They made blue for Boys
 Pink/Red for Girls.

They can't enforce it though since it was built with govt funding. But I heard that most ppl comply...

You don't need to be a resident. You need to look Jewish. If you're not Jewish, living in the town of Monroe they won't let you in.

Most local town & village parks do the same to Jews

(They officially only allow residents but is enforced mostly on KJ looking people)

State parks are open to everyone

“Many people have complained about Kiryas Joel voters having too much of a say in the Town of Monroe," Kiryas Joel Administrator Gedalye Szegedin said in the press release. "We agree with the many people who have suggested over the years that creating two separate towns is the most practical way to alleviate that concern. We firmly believe that this is an important step in the healing process for these two communities.”

DW had to be in KJ for a day last week, so I was there for a couple of hours.

When I needed to daven Mincha, I went into a Beis Medrash where I had just parked. I was amazed by the fact that I had to search high and low for a צדקה פושקע where I could give some צדקה before mincha. I don't recall ever Davening in a place where there was no פושקע either on the wall near the entrance, or on the bima (and in many places someone goes around with that one during חזרת הש״ץ. After walking out, I realized that there were also no beggars, משולחים, or anyone asking for צדקה. The situation struck me as so unusual, that I decided to inquire. Going out of shul I asked two young men about this. Their response was that there might be a lot of קלעבעדיקע הענט. To which I responded חס ושלום, can't think of yidden like that.

The next day I called up a friend who lives in KJ, and usually calls me for help finding parking in Crown Heights during simchas Beis Hashoaiva to inquire. When I described to him the location, his response was דארטן גיי איך ניט אריין, so he doesn't know anything about it. Does this all boil down to politics/fights? Is it that bad that a shul can't have pushkas for people to easily give tzedoko before Davening?

Otherwise, I must say that the place is amazing. Might even consider moving there if I would have the type of chinuch I would want for my kids 😀.

I wish some KJ locals would post on the Pros and cons of where you live.

Was going with the family to Monroe for vacation next week and was wondering if someone could list all the kosher eateries in the area with a little detail. Also, is there a fleishig place, or a sushi place?
For some reason it's not easy to find proper info online for Monroe.

Not sure what details you're looking for, but here are the basics:

Dairy:
-Eataly (formerly Butter Blend)
-Yossi's Pizza
-Breuer's Pizza
-Monroe Bakery
-Munch and Brunch

Sushi:
-Exxon Kosher

Fleishig:
-Both Satmar butchers have deli sections

Thanks for your help. As I was coming with my family, I wanted to know if you can sit down in the satmar butchers to eat or do they only have takeout?
Are any of the dairy places mentioned - like a bagel place? Do they all have room to sit down with a family?
Are any of the dairy places you mentioned more upscale then the others?
I heard about the Valero gas station, what food does that have?
Thanks again.

No sit-down Fleishig places that I'm aware of. There might be seating at the Sandwich Spot (a relatively new place that I've never been to).

If by bagel place you mean where you can have breakfast, all of the dairy options should work.

No real upscale ones and you could sit down at all of the dairy options on the list aside from maybe Munch and Brunch, and Monroe Bakery.

Valero is now Exxon. They have sandwiches, pizza, etc. And great sushi. No seating.

The milchig places all have seating. Kj is not the place to go to if you want to have a nice sit meal with a family.

I was there recently looks like a good place, though I didn't like the look of the pizza, (I'm saying the look because I didn't taste it)

Not an activity but a suggestion: The Nuttery in Refresh market has great shakes and coffees. Got a few for DW while I was vacationing there, and scored some points.

Yea phenomenal sandwiches done in super fast speed. Very useful when davening there on the way to the Catskills. I'd say they're open in the morning hours, hence the name "פת שחרית טראק".

King David Mansion

Mostly stayed on grounds and took advantage of the pool. Went once to Ruach Hachaim, but it was a broiling day and there are no trees in the park, so it was unbearably hot.

I think the Google Maps location is the office, not the actual house.

The house is on a private property, surrounded by trees.

It's the house circled.

There is access to a road from a gate in the back, and there is a small shul right around the corner. Good luck finding a Shachis minyan on Shabbos before 10:30, though. (Tidbid, Yoely Falkowitz davens in that shul.)

IMHO Yossi's Pizza has very good soft serve ice cream.

I will add, that if you get pizza over there, the story of כלים רקים אל תמעיטי comes to mind. You might get enough oil off a pie to last an entire Chanuka. However, after you take care of the oil situation, I think the Pizza is very good. I've also enjoyed putting together a plate of a main dish with two side dishes. Very decent choices.
