Anyone know anything about the Chasidish community in Linden?
Whats the crowd like there? Im thinking of going there without any siblings- will I be lonely? Is it community style? Do the woman there ever gather together for social outings?
Trying to get the feel of the place

I know 2 families that are going. As far as I know , nobody went with siblings. There is Kosover Rebbe's son in law, that is helping people buy and settle in Linden. Please inquire. There are plenty families living there already. I think they bus to BP for school and cheder.

I heard there are some Bobov couples who are moving there.

I know someone living there who is in her 40’s but she did say there were some young couples moving there.

I have a relative there. Shes married for short while with one baby. She said they do get together. There are about 25 families living there. You need to go through vaad to buy, and be part of the koson shul.

Clarification:
The chasidish community in Linden was started by the Koson Rebbe of Boro Park [14th Ave cor 44st. is his shul which he took over after his father passed on]
His name is Rabbi Meyer Yosef Rottenberg
It has no relation to Kosov
[sorry I don't know more info so can't chime in to answer your question]

The children are bussed in to school.

Why do you need to go through the vaad to buy a house in Linden? You can't just go through a real estate agent?

Yeah. It makes no sense that you need to go through a vaad. Koson doesn't own linden.

You don't need to go through the vaad. Anyone can buy on their own.

What I heard is that if you buy on your own, you are not welcome to join the shul

Anytime you buy from a broker in pioneer communities you pay way more than when you knock in at a house that has a "for sale" sign" & buy directly from owner.

There are people usually invested in making a new community successful, to build the infrastucture needed for a Jewish community, they are the ones that set the prices

Yes, this is accurate.
They are trying to control the real estate prices in Linden from inflating due to the influx of frum families.

There's no influx of frum families going on. The community is really not growing.

I find this a bit of "cultish".

The community in Linden is growing B"h beautifully. It's growing on a steadier basis because its attracting a fine chassidishe young crowd.

They’re not vetting or controlling who wants to move.
Someone moving in from the MO community would not buy through this Vaad.
Only those who are looking to join their community and use their resources-Mikva, shul, free bussing to BP schools.
They’re trying to artificially preserve RE prices.
