I used to live in that area, yeas ago; then, the area was almost 100% Jewish. Unfortunately, that area has seen other unprovoked attacks against Jews in recent years. When I lived there, such attacks were completely unheard of! A shanda what is occurring not only on Avenue J, but also in Crown Heights, Williamsburg, and Borough Park!
