How much will the Hasidic communities grow in the US, particularly in NY? Each hasidic jewish family has an average of 4 children per family, and they have them very young usually, around 18. Will these communities become some of the most densly populated in the country, just based off of the exponential growth?

The Hasidic neighborhoods in the NYC area are the fastest growing parts of the region. And they have some of the highest birth rates in the country. Visit a Hasidic neighborhood in Brooklyn, or one of the Hasidic suburbs (Lakewood, NJ, Passaic, NJ, Kiryas Joel, NY, Monsey, NY etc.) and you'll see dense apartment construction everywhere.

So, obviously, they will grow, alot.

Passaic has a large and fast-growing Hasidic Jewish population, so no. After Lakewood, it's the biggest Hasidic population in NJ.

Are you sure that the average is only 4 children per family?

Kiryas Joel and Monsey are overwhelmingly Hasidic. Lakewood is over 50% Hasidic. Even if one were to assume each and every one of the 12,000 Jews living in Passaic-Clifton were both in Passaic and Hasidic (which, rest assured, they aren't), that would be 17% of the total population--a healthy proportion for sure, but nowhere near the scale of Kiryas Joel, Monsey, or Lakewood. Even if that population is growing, I don't think Passaic is primed to become like the other three, though who knows, stranger things have happened.
