I’m neutral chassidish and considering the large housing complex at the corner of union ans viola as it’s more affordable then other homes we are looking at in Monsey (lest I get attacked by the folks on the Monsey school thread, I grew up in Monsey and renting an apartment currently in Monsey.)my question is whether I would fit in. I went to bais Rochel Monsey and I drive and speak English as my primary language. I don’t want to be the modern one. Anyone here live there or know a lot about it ?
I know someone that lives there. They're very nice but definitely Yiddish speaking. But that's just the one family that I know.
My parents had looked into buying there when it was being built but ultimately decided against it because of the way it's built giving it more of a city feel than Monsey.
There's a real mix living there now. I know families that send to Munkatch, Sanz, BDY, Bais Rochel..... a real mix of schools. I also know families from Brooklyn that bought there. There are still houses being built, you can't really know how it's going to turn out to be in the end. But it's affordable, and as people are buying, the price is slowly going up.
We looked into it for a long time and ultimately decided not to go for it.
