The highly anticipated expansion for Crown Heights’ prestigious Mikvah Meir has begun at full throttle, with workers carving out a below-ground space for the extension and a new elevator.

As first reported on Anash.org, the popular men’s mikvah recently set out to alleviate the crowding problem that the mikvah frequently encounters by expanding into the next building, doubling the size of the mikvah and allowing them to install an elevator.

Currently located at 394 Kingston, the extension is being built in the next door building, 396 Kingston, which formerly housed the Elzees clothing store. Workers and heavy machinery were on the site on Tuesday, resuming the work that began before Pesach.

Bulldozers were seen digging in the basement, making space to extend the mikvah at the same below-ground level where it currently sits, while next door, mikvah patrons continued to enjoy use of the high class facilities.

The expansion is expected to take many long months, and Mikvah Meir has not announced an expected date of completion.

Discussion are also in place about expanding the Beis Eliezer Yitzchok, which is situated above Mikvah Meir, into the next building as well. However, a final decision has not yet been reached whether to go ahead with that expansion or not.
