For sure it's less common today, but am I surprised that there are still a few snooty buildings on the Upper East Side that try to restrict Jews moving on? No.

Am in agreement (partially). The Jews have historically been shut out of certain areas. This is less of an issue these days but still exists. Am also here to tell you that Jews on the Upper East Side are *not* an anomaly. They may not be in certain buildings in high numbers but there are plenty of them in the neighborhood overall. Sometimes wonder if I'm in Riverdale on Saturdays seeing so many Jews during Shabbat or whatever. Can also tell you there are a large number of Jewish landlords in NY, so am not sure why you're so offended by that comment. It's a good business to be in. Jews *DO* play a large role in NY real estate and have now for years.

There are attack dogs on this forum, not all regular posters in this section, who appear when a certain group is mentioned.

They were inept. Hillary was a very establishment politician and also failed on certain issues. Trump was also inept, with an unstable personality and basically no history in politics.

It's okay. When they try to move to other neighborhoods, people complain about that too.

-"Progressive" but most of their friends are white but hey, they have a black/Hispanic friend who just so happens to serve them coffee every morning.
I had a black education professor who was all about progressive education...

...and managed to get his daughter into the best public school in Park Slope, not the neighborhood he lived in, wouldn't you know.

It doesn't matter the race---if a parent gives a crap about the education of their children, they'll do whatever they can to get them to the better school. Guarantee he'd put up a fight as well even if they wanted to rezone the school he sent his daughter too.

It's because of outrage exhaust, it doesnt mean Trump is any more popular.

Trump does so many dumb things that it's just business as usual. But if he does something severe such as the travel ban, there will be a lot of noise from the left.

If Trumpcare passes, believe me that the left will not be quiet.

To be honest, you are right. I did say a stereotype. And Stereotypes can be a bit offensive. We all have learned that due to what Jay Z said about your peoples in his latest album. Stereotypes can be misleading, but none of the less, it is mostly true. Again I'm sorry. However, instead of using control, I tend to use the moniker "Influence". And Jews do wield plenty of influence in NYC real estate. My Previous boss who is Jewish even said that NYS and NYC real estate laws are designed for Jews only. But overall, I highly doubt such buildings bar Jews from owning a co-op, especially since plenty of the wealthy comprises of Jews in NYC, which therefore have the money to buy into properties, same for any other race or ethnic group. ADL would have a field day with the Co-op board and management company.

Thanks Pierrepont. People don't know that Jews wield plenty of influence in many industries throughout NYC and this nation. Folks cant be upset, Jews work, work hard, believe in family and education, save money and spend within their own community. Thus getting a job in high places, or a profession of esteem like doctor or lawyer.

Have had several *several* landlords during my time in the States, and they've always been Jewish. Perhaps because I've lived in Jewish neighborhoods off and on, but part of it is they believe in investing and getting huge returns on their investments, and what better way than real estate?
