I meant that the black Carribean population lives across Flatbush Ave. I thought you were referring to the Carribeans on the other side of Brooklyn. Canarsie these days is mostly black West Indian, though there is also a Jewish population and some others. There is no West Indian presence close to the SY community.

The Ultra Orthodox population is close to Gravesend, but is not directly in the SY neighborhood. Everything from about Avenue M to Ave. Z between McDonald Ave. and Ocean Parkway is dominated by Orthodox, not Ultra Orthodox.

Ultra Orthodox are in huge numbers to the north, east and west, but not right in Gravesend.

And, again, I am not a member of the community, I am not even Jewish. But I have business dealings with the community, and know it very well. I deal with the community almost every weekday, and it is definitely a growing community that is expanding geographically.

King's Highway in Brooklyn (between Coney Island Avenue and Mc Donald Avenue) has a large population of Mizrachi/Middle Eastern Jews (also go a few avenues up, and a few avenues down, at least to Avenue U.)

Lots of Syrian and Egyptian synagogues, restaurants, kosher grocery stores, and Mizrachi-Jewish owned businesses.
There are million dollar homes, but you can also rent or buy a coop apartment - for apartments it's one of the more affordable parts of New York City/Brooklyn, because it's a distance from Manhattan - a good 45-60 minutes by subway.

You could rent a 1 bedroom apartment for less than $1500/month and buy a 1 bedroom for around $200,000, give or take.

The Middle Eastern Jewish population now goes south to about Avenue X, as the community expands.

It's also expanding in other directions, but not totally sure about boundaries (maybe Avenue M to the north, and a few blocks past the F train to the west, and a few blocks past Ocean Pkwy to the east).

I second this. Lived in Farmington Hills for 14 years, and I worked in West Bloomfield. There is a very sizable, strong Jewish presence in the area. West Bloomfield schools close for all Jewish holidays, and one of the largest, if not the largest, Jewish Community Centers in North America (with a fabulous kosher restaurant) is located there. The outstanding Holocaust Memorial Center is in neighboring Farmington Hills.

And there's an equally strong Middle Eastern population throughout the Metro Detroit area (the largest outside of the Middle East). They're more Christian in the northern burbs, while the large Muslim population is more concentrated in the Dearborn area.

Though the northern suburbs like FH, WB and others are quite affluent, Metro Detroit, overall, is much more affordable than other large metro areas in the country.

Blue Ash, just northeast of Cincinnati.
Creve Coeur, west of St. Louis.
Bexley/Berwick in Columbus.

These areas aren't overwhelmingly Jewish a la some parts of Brooklyn, but they are much more affordable (well, maybe not Bexley).

The entire central corridor of St. Louis County has a large Jewish population, stretching from the western city limits through University City (home to several thousand Orthodox and Hasidic Jews), Clayton, Ladue, Olivette, Westwood, Creve Coeur, and Chesterfield. Over 64,000 Jews live in the St. Louis metro (not including the Illinois suburbs).

We also have a very large Middle Eastern population here in Windsor as well. Many have family over in Dearborn, which is why many have chosen Windsor to live in Canada, so they can be close to family across the river. Wyandotte St. e. is the main arab commercial area, a good 12 blocks of mainly arab owned businesses and restaurants, a very vibrant community.

I'm Jewish and from Bergen County. I'm very close to NYC so you have it near you while your cost of living is a little reduced. Almost every other person is Jewish here or at least half Jewish. My college in Newark is half Middle Eastern, so we all blend into each other. If it matters to you, there is also a sizable East Asian population in the Bergen area.
