wow. I am so sheltered. Thanks for enlightening :)
Wow. Take your kids for a walk in BP or Williamsburg these days. They'll see large containers with huge almost dying carp gasping their last breaths outside every fish store.

The sprit of the message is true, but the analogy makes no sense, neither the ship of the past, nor the “ship” of the present.

The point is that Chassidim are stuck in the same five communities we've been in since the war, because ships happen to have arrived in NYC. If only they would have arrived somewhere pleasant instead...

It's time to move past the stuck mentality and choose to create communities in places we would actually enjoy living in.

That's one of the big questions I have about the Tampa plan - with the entirety of the United States open to you, why choose a place that has unpleasant weather and is just so... boring? (And yes, I know that AZ is a lot hotter. But that's been discussed to death - 110 in AZ is a lot more pleasant than 90 in FL.)

They landed in NYC because that's where there was opportunity to make money . If they would've gone someplace else, 1) they probably would've had a better quality of life 2) a lot of future generations would have been forced to get jobs and not just suck off the grandfather's labor  ;)

In your opinion, which are the top 5 places in the US where you'd choose to start new communities?

The Tampa people were looking for 2 things, a development ready to take over in a red state. Those were the most important criteria, everything else is secondary.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There are a number of factors to consider:
- Education (vouchers)
- Affordable housing
- Food (access to existing supply lines)
- Government, both local and state
- Ease of access to NY and other Jewish hubs (direct/affordable flights)
- Climate
- Room for growth
- Job/business opportunities
- Local culture

I don't think it's particularly easy to find too many places which check all of the boxes.

If millions would’ve arrived on ships anywhere pleasant I doubt it would still be very pleasant.
