A reader passed along these photos of Democratic and Conservative State Senate candidate Simcha Felder's new campaign office, at the intersection of 13th Avenue and 53rd Street in Borough Park, a remarkably busy spot in the neighborhood.
It's across the street from Congregation Shomrei Shabbos, which, the Times noted, is "a 24-hour synagogue where a service begins every 15 minutes."
Felder is an Orthodox Jew, like a substantial and growing number of voters in the district.
Storobin, who is also Jewish, defeated a Democrat to win the seat earlier this year by relying on votes from the area's Russian immigrants, whose collective voting power may have been diluted in the redrawing of this district.
