Hasidic Jewish Children Reportedly Kicked Out of Park Amid Massive NYC Protests, Riots During Pandemic
While droves of protesters continue to march through the streets of New York City — and around the world — businesses remain shuttered, churches closed, and Hasidic Jewish children apparently banned from playing in a neighborhood park.
The incident unfolded Monday afternoon, when New York Police Department officers booted a bunch of kids and their parents from a park in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
