Illegally run Satmar yeshiva in Clinton Hill, NYC told to leave

It was operating illegally for 2 decades, and students in the building even littered and harassed neighboring tenants with noise. Now, they've been told to move out:
CLINTON HILL — A yeshiva has been operating illegally in Clinton Hill for two decades — and the community board is saying that the school should move to Williamsburg instead because that's where the Satmar community is "geographically concentrated."

Community Board 2 recently shot down the United Talmudical Academy's bid to continue to operate in a manufacturing zone because it doesn't have necessary permits — despite the school being there for more than 20 years.

Community board members shot down the permit in part because they say there are plenty of other sites for schools in southern Williamsburg, where most of the students live. [...]

Neighbors and the community board's resolution says the yeshiva, which serves boys in grades K-12, uses the area behind the building on Washington Avenue as a parking lot and for bus repair, often cleaning engines with power washers that flood the street with chemicals.

They also claim students throw furniture, food and garbage out the windows and into the streets and yards of neighboring properties. [...]

The owner of the building next door to the Clinton Hill school said his female tenants are harassed by unsupervised children who yell out the windows. His building is mixed-use under New York's loft conversion law.

"Many of my tenants keep their shades drawn during school hours so they won't get yelled at," said Peter Noel Duhamel who has owned the building at 66-68 Washington Ave. for nine years. "The students can be aggressive."
With that kind of obnoxious attitude, it's no wonder they don't belong in that neighborhood. In fact, the students who yelled at the neighboring women and the teachers who allowed this should be charged by police with disturbing the peace, ditto for littering other people's property. And the yeshiva even worked illegally. It's just like the Satmar to pull stunts like that, and apparently got away with this for years. Now, I hope the local community board is going to send a message to them that this is unacceptable and if this is how they're going to behave, they're not welcome in the neighborhood.
