I think it already is. Don't know the numbers, but sure seems like more eateries per capita than any other frum community.
Very few would appeal to a foodie.

As far as I know, there isn't any eiruv on the 9 at all yet. They are working on one large eiruv for the south side of Lakewood to avoid these types of problems and confusion.

The point about minhag hamakom is not a small one. Even the Sons of Israel eruv excludes Madison.

Hard to say that applies to Lakewood in this day and age. Anyways the new eiruv does not include the nine for now.

true but toms River has their own minhagim

and the minhag in Lakewood is that every eruv is disputed if its good or not

I personally dont care to carry in a ripped eruv because every eruv is an eruv b'toch eruv so there's always an outer eruv to rely on /JK

Vaad doesn't have control over Lakewood anymore.
They still have a significant following

True, but it's not like they can deliver Lakewood anymore.

If last time he won lakewood by 114 votes he's not winning this time. It's unfortunate, as Murphy will most likely win and if he sees he got the majority in lakewood we will continue to have his protectzia.

If Murphy doesn’t get completely demolished in Lakewood (and he won’t) then he’s doing well.

IMO, he missed a big opportunity to get Trump-like support here. One pardon and he would have won a huge percentage, plus a big turnout.
