“Just Not Fair”: Communities Bristle at New NYC Shutdowns

NEW YORK — Anger and resentment are flaring in New York City neighborhoods that are facing new coronavirus shutdowns. Some residents say the state is unfairly targeting Orthodox Jewish communities as it tries to stamp out hot spots before they spread.

Protests erupted in Brooklyn’s Borough Park neighborhood after Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced new restrictions on schools, businesses and houses of worship in some parts of the city and state. Frustration and grievances kept simmering Wednesday.

Cuomo says the state does must contain the clusters.

After becoming the nation’s deadliest coronavirus hot spot this spring, New York wrestled its outbreak down to a steady and relatively low level over the summer. But infections have been rising in recent weeks, and hospitalizations are starting to follow.
