New Square New York – A Village of Hasidim


The New York Times has said that to set foot in New Square, New York is to step back in time as if traveling to an East European town from the previous century. Many residences have multiple families living therein, as New Square has the lowest income per capita in New York State at just $962 per year.

Many young men spend their time studying Torah, and in all, there are about 350 families present in the area. The crime rate is lower than most, and students enjoy paying for their tuition based on their personal income. The community is close knit, and families with between four and eight children are the norm.


4,624 residents live in New Square, and these are dispersed in densely packed housing units. 77.8% have children under the age of 18 living therein, and 92.6% have married couples. Just 2% are comprised of a single female householder, and 4.1% are nonfamilies. 3.3% are persons living alone who are above the age of 65.
