Menachem Mendel Hendel Above and Beyond

274 Kingston Ave. Brooklyn, NY: The Premises, designated as a student dormitory shall be used and maintained as a student dormitory.

Regarding: 274 – 276 Kingston Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11206
Cross Street(s): Eastern Parkway and Lincoln Place

Chaired by:
Menachem Mendel Hendel (a.k.a. Mendy or Mendel Hendel).

City Zoning laws for the above location is maximum three floors so how is it that Mendel Hendel was allowed to construct a building of five floors?

Mr. Hendel was able to bypass city zoning laws by claiming to be constructing a Student Dormitory. By claiming this, Mr. Hendel would be exempt from many zoning restrictions.

See for yourselves:

 State of New York,
County of-KINGS ss:
On the 27th day of July in the year 2006, before me the undersigned, personally appeared, personally known to me or proved to me on the basis of satisfactory evidence to be the individual whose name is subscribed to the within instrument and acknowledged.

We the residents of the Crown Heights community know that Mr. Hendel has no plans to use the above property for a “student dorm”. Rumors are that Mr. Hendel is planing to rent out rooms to various guest.

Even the Messianic (Mishichist) web-site (owned  by Mendel Hendel) says nothing about about a “student Dorm” when referring to the above property.

The Countdown Is Almost Over

Dining Hall, Guest Rooms Ready

The countdown to the completion of the Eshel Hachnosas Orchim building, is almost over. The building, situated on Kingston Avenue and Eastern Parkway, will host hundreds of guest rooms for the Rebbe’s guests. Unfortunately, the construction was not finished on time to open it’s doors to the thousands of guests who came to spend Tishrei in 770, however the planned completion date is just two months away. Recently the guest rooms, and dining hall were completed ( 17 Cheshvan 5770 (04.11.2009).

The images we see above are not one of a Yeshiva Dormitory.

What “Yeshiva” did Menachem Mendel Hendel claim was going to reside in this “Dormitory”?

    even Hendel would not let his mishichist Tzvati terrorist occupy his own property.

    they can occupy other properties (oh others account) but not his.

  2. ExMishichechist Says:

    Everything Hendel does is crocked.

    Anybody who associates himself with Hendel is questionable.

    All these people “donating charity” to Hendel organization (the Mishechist movement) is most likely doing some shtick or another.

  3. Anonymous Says:

    This is the same scam they pulled at 580 Crown with Eli Cohen and co., designate condos for ‘Faculty’ and earn tax benefits and some air rights.
    No real institution/faculty?! – No problem, just open up a new corp, call it CYTTL, wash all the condos through there and everybody wins.

  4. confused Says:

    to every agency Hendel seems to be something else.

    To the IRS hes files one thing to the building department another.

  5. question Says:

    Mr. Hendel was able to bypass city zoning laws by claiming to be constructing a Student Dormitory. By claiming this, Mr. Hendel would be exempt from many zoning restrictions.

    How so? How by claiming to be a dormitory would he be allowed to bypass zoning laws?
