Williamsburg Newsflash: Hasidic Jews Lust After Hot Chicks On Bikes

This is actually old news but still pretty funny.

"Leaders of South Williamsburg's Hasidic community said yesterday that bike lanes that bring scantily clad cyclists - especially sexy women - peddling through their neighborhood are definitely not kosher.

The red-faced religious sect is calling on city officials to eliminate the car-free lanes on Wythe and Bedford avenues, and to delay construction of a new one planned for Kent Avenue.

"I have to admit, it's a major issue, women passing through here in that dress code," Simon Weisser, a member of Community Board 1 in Williamsburg-Greenpoint, told The Post.

"It bothers me, and it bothers a lot of people."

Hasids are forbidden from looking at members of the opposite sex who aren't fully dressed, said local activist Isaac Abraham.

I realize you may be unaware... but nice job grabbing an article from one of the best known yellow journalism rags in this country... perhaps you missed the hubbub over the gunned-down chimp cartoon?

Yes, Hasidic Jews can get touchy about women in "revealing" clothing... big whoop.
