If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Nothing to do with population....

Just going to add my 2 cents here, Skulen Rebbe was an erliche yid, just what his cronies made f him the last few year is pathetic, I still remember passing by in the afternoon years ago being asked to come in for minyan.

now this street closure is super crazy, crazy will be an understatement. Millions of people are not coming, and this is not Bnei Brak and most people work for a living and most won't be able to take the day off. Given that it's a cit where people live and work, I just got a call from my son's school that big chance there will be no pickup in the morning and "everyone should find their own means to get the kids to school". The radius that the streets are being closed also doesn't make scene, Skulen is by 13*54 so why is 60&61 Street being closed? I work there and it's gridlock everyday from local businesses that will struggle tomorrow with their clients why is it closed till 16th Avenue? thank god they aren't closing down 13th Avenue.
Same reason why by Yanky Mayer's flagship tehillim event in Bobov shul every year the surrounding streets gets closed for no normal reason.

</rant>

Actually turns out not enough streets were closed.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Problem was that after being so careful the entire time to keep everyone off the street & 14th ave, for some odd reason when it was really needed cleared they let everyone onto the streets. The cops just quietly moved away & let everyone crowd the streets. Itís possible they got faulty info that the hearse went a different direction last minute.

If you can top 250k that Rav Moshe Feinstein had then we can talk...

If only that number was true. Klal Yisrael in the region literally tripled in population since then.

The original plan that was published, was that the procession would turn down 58 st. But the van kept going along 14 Ave.  That's where the accident happened and maybe that's why.  The van stopped for a bit, then continued and turned the other way at 60th street. ( up to 13 Ave)

I'm not a Skulener, and haven't been near him for over 20 years.

They opened 14th ave before the aron ever left the shul. One minute they were still yelling at everyone to stay off the streets & the next minute they just walked away. By the time the aron came to 14th there was nowhere to move. It took half hour just to get to 14th
