Any recommend car services in Lakewood to staten island that you guys can recommend?
Uber/Lyft would be the cheapest.

You can try Rides to Fly maybe.

Get some people that wait for work at 2nd street.

Use at your own risk.

Iím guessing if it hadnít been promoted as being in collaboration with Ottimo and UFC they would have looked the other way. Itís one thing to privately rent out your premises. Itís another to actively take part. Lake Terrace had that Indian Hindu wedding on shabbos and it didnít get this kind of pushback.

Are they really going to put a shortcut across the lake?

Would be sweet for Shabbos.

Though Iíve heard concerns that people will start parking in Central area during the week and walk across to BMG.

Once again I'll repeat - it wasn't promoted at all, which is why practically no one saw this image before today. I also fail to see the distinction with Lake Terrace as they actively involved in hosting any events in their space.

Regardless, KCL is no longer the monopoly they used to be, good riddance.

Big difference between hosting events for frum people and renting out your premises to outsiders.

You are right, there is a huge difference. One is hosting a private kosher event for frum people, the other is hosting a massive, public treif event on Shabbos for gentiles.

Is Lake Terrace certified by KCL?
They put this statement out 2 years ago.

But LT still appears on the KCL certified establishments list.

Why would a hall need a hechsher? The caterer has one.

IDK, but read the article. The caterer clearly has KCL for BF and not for LT. Could it be precisely because they host Indian weddings?

The hall gets rented out to non-Jews frequently. There is no problem with non-Jews having an treif event. AFAIK the kitchen is locked.
