Block busting is alive and well in Chestnut Ridge. Someone stopped me while I was cutting my grass on Monday and asked if I wanted to sell my house. A van was slowly driving up and down my street this afternoon and I received this letter in the mail. Feeling a little pressured to move these days.
We are covering this topic because while “blockbusting” an illegal practice, social media has created loopholes in its enforcement. We recommend that you be diligent, warn you neighbors and say unequivocally, “NO.” when someone approaches.
We welcome personal experiences of our readership.
