A Piece of Brooklyn Perhaps Lost to Time -

A Piece of Brooklyn Perhaps Lost to Time - " Unlike in the hipster section north of Grand Avenue, the images here — knife-grinders on the street, bearded men in 19th-century frock coats — are not only vivid, they are also apparently lost to time. The neighborhood, which is served by the Marcy Avenue stop on the J, M and Z trains, is home to thousands of Hasidic Jews, mainly of the Satmar sect, which derives its name from the town of Satu Mare in Romania. Be forewarned: some of the residents do not take kindly to intrusion and may greet strangers with a brusque look."
