BROOKLYN - Dozens of community activists protested what they call segregation and exclusionary housing at Broadway Triangle today.

Protesters claim that two housing developments are being built by a Hasidic developer, exclusively for Hasidic families. They say it's unfair, especially when there's already a shortage on new, affordable living.

Many residents also say that they were left out of the planning process, but the city insists that all community members had ample opportunity to voice their opinions.
