Billburg Hasids Seek to Re-Route Sexy Bikers
The New York Post says South Williamsburg Hasidim are upset at the incursion of underdressed female cyclists from the trendier North. They actually want some of their district's car-free lanes, which are "popular with North Williamsburg hipsters -- many who ride in shorts or skirts," to be abolished.
At Vos is Neias, the faithful react: "The more laws like this the better!" says one. "It will most definitely keep out those goyim.""This isn't meah shearim," says another. "What will happen if they bike ride through, will they be stoned?"
