This picture was taken in Williamsburg, Brooklyn New York. This is one of the biggest Hasidic Jewish community in the City. The Hasidic community of Williamsburg has one of the highest birthrates in the country, with an average of eight children per family.Each year, the community celebrates between 800 and 900 weddings for young couples, who typically marry between the ages of 18 and 21. Because Hasidic men receive little secular education, and women tend to be homemakers, college degrees are rare, and economic opportunities lag far behind the rest of the population. When I was walking around the area I saw lots of kids playing in the streets. I felt like I traveled back in time. I found it really enchanting.
