Hasidim and Artisten, Coexisting Uneasily in Williamsburg
"Please remove from upon us the plague of the artists, so that we shall not drown in evil waters, and so that they shall not come to our residence to ruin it." So reads one prayer making the rounds in South Williamsburg. But protests focus not on new residents, but rather on the Jewish developers building their pricey, urbane lofts.
