I agree though "Hispanic" is too broad-based, specifically it would be Puerto Rican.

In Baltimore, Highlandtown which is was majority Greek now is becoming more Latino/Hispanic, notably Mexican and Puerto Rican. Dominicans are also making a presence in and around Baltimore.

All of Eastern Ave. in Baltimore use to be ethnic enclaves. It is still surprising how hispanic that corridor has become in only a few short years.

That's true. From Fells Point, all the way to Dundalk has become for Hispanic. From what I remember, 10 years ago it wasn't like this. Also, Woodlawn has become much more Middle Eastern than it was when I was staying there in 2003

That's true, but Chinatowns seem to be the exception and continue to expand. Chinatowns in San Francisco/NYC were a bit smaller 50 years ago, but are still around.

What you'll see with displaced enclaves is where the lower-to mid-range products become sold at supermarkets and become everyday items, while remaining products (such as restaurants) become more upscale. Its also natural as the children of the immigrants marry into a different ethnicity, further diluting the culture as time progresses. Those that don't quite make it tend to relocate to a lower-cost area/part of the country and generally become part of the Walmart/Safeway culture, while those who are successful become part of the upscale professional class and participate in the gentrification in the city or live in desirable suburban neighborhoods with good transit access.

That said for Baltimore, proper Greektown is east of Highlandtown and while the demographics have changed a bit, there is still a noticeable cluster of Greek businesses in those few blocks just west of I-895. However, even there like so many other European ethnic neighborhoods, Latino/Chinese-type residents/business have taken over. In away Highlandtown is the closest thing in Baltimore that is to Queens in NYC. There are Russian, Fillipino, Dominican, Chinese, Italian, Irish, Mexican, German, and perhaps more. Fells Point is also quite diverse too, with the majority of Latino businesses in the northern portion of the neighborhood and even has some Thai/Japanese joints, but it was never a historically ethnic neighborhood and always thought of as being diverse. If only the majority of the abandoned/blighted neighborhoods were like Highlandtown and Fells Point, Baltimore could be one of the best cities in the country.

And listing Brooklyn as an "ethnic enclave" is just WAY too broad, given how many neighborhoods it contains.

Pilsen, Chicago. Similar to HP but it used to be a Czech neighborhood and now mostly Mexican, but it too is facing gentrification and it has caused a lot of controversy.
My family lived in Garfield Park and my aunt's family lived in Humboldt Park back in the day when they were predominantly Irish, Italian and Jewish. That was back in the 40's and 50's.

Pittsburghs east end as a whole is rapidly gentrifying. Very exciting to see it taking place.
Even though Beech view has a significant Latino/Mexican Population it is big enough to maintain much of it's Caucasion population without any large scale white flight. A lot of young urbanista folks are moving in because of affordabilty.
