- CIRCUIT JUDGE LYNCH : Just so I understand . You don't think at least your ideal proposal would not take in people from Borough Park and move them into an other district that was combined with other South Brooklyn Jewish communities. You' re satisfied with that piece that completely nullifies the Jewish vote in favor of Liberals, but you're interested in taking the communities to the east of there and linking them in some way either to what's now the proposed 8th which is a majority black district, and includes Bedford–Stuyvesant, or what' s now the proposed 11th . Is that the idea ?
- COUNCILMAN GREENFIELD : Let me just be clear . I think it's a two - part question , if I may . So part one I would say that the community that I represent notice how Greenfield is speaking for all of Borough Park I think is very satisfied with the plans of the 10th Congressional District are you happy being in the same district as The largest gay "community" on the east coast and being represented by Jerry Nadler. We notice how he's speaking for all of Borough Park don't believe that we need to have a district that encompasses the entire community or try to elect an Orthodox Jew . I can say that honestly because I would probably benefit the most if such a district would be created so this baal geyva thinks that we would elect him to congress?. That's not we're looking for, we're just looking for the communities to have a voice like in Nadler's district we have a voice?. So you have a hundred thousand roughly Orthodox Jews Kensington, Borough Park, and Bensonhurst we're now currently in the 10th , that's great if you are for homosexuality and liberalism, and don't want Shuls getting money from FEMA. The problem is on the other side they're sort of broken up . So what I've proposed is that let's either go back to the - - once again , I understand the burdens that you have in terms of trying to balance this all so that's why I ' m trying to give some possibilities . Potentially go back to the 9th where we can incorporate this community , or perhaps combine them with the current 11 th . For example, honestly, if we're speaking frankly, the 9th, current proposed 9th District , which is currently represented by an individual whose views and values do not mesh very well with the Orthodox Jewish community he's referring to Yevette Clarke and is correct but Nadlers doesn't fit with us any better then Clarke . And so, I would propose that those communities specifically the communities of Midwood , Gravesend , and Marine Park they should be combined into one area to give those communities a fair voice. and he has no problem if they would be linked together with Bedford–Stuyvesant

The Court in it's decision Even Quoted Greenfield, as one of the excuses to not allow the Jewish community to be united in one district, and thus nullifying our votes
- The proposed solutions also varied.
- One public official Greenfield noted that the Orthodox population was insufficient to constitute a majority in any single district . He suggested that the Recommended Plan adequately concentrated what he characterized as about half of the Orthodox residents of South Brooklyn ( those residing in Borough Park) in Recommended District 10 Nadler's district , but he argued that more easterly residents were divided among several districts and could beneficially be unified.
- These divergences mostly Greenfield's suggest the difficulties, even under ideal conditions, of identifying and satisfying the particular concerns of the objectors
