Vishnitz coming to the 5-Towns

As per the JP:

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hager, Vishnitzer Rav of Bnei Brak and son of Rabbi Moshe Yehoshua Hager, Vishnitzer Rebbe in Bnei Brak, will be coming to the United States for several weeks. Rabbi Hager will visit Boro Park, the Five Towns, Flatbush, Lakewood, Monsey, Queens and Williamsburg. The Rav will spend one Shabbos in Williamsburg and another in Lakewood.

The Vishnitzer Rav’s inclusion of Lakewood in his itinerary is an additional indication that the city has become a full-fledged chassidishe community in spite of its generations-long identification, solely, as a yeshivish community.
