Looks like the Italian Market in Philly is becoming the Italian/Mexican market.

Juniata Park itself rapidly went from a Irish neighborhood to a Hispanic one since the early to mid 1990s.. Much of the Lower Northeast, once an almost a lily white bastion has seen major influxes of minorities since that dreadful decade in regards to white flight that affected the city big time , the 1990s. During that same time period the west part of Overbrook ( the east part of OP has been black since the 60s )
and almost entirely Overbrook Park , traditionally Italian and Jewish respectively changed into predominately African American as well as the lower part of Southwest Philly including Elmwood and South Philly's Gray's Ferry both which were staunchly Italian and Irish.
Yea , before it used only really be the eastern portions of North Philly that used to be predominately Hispanic/Rican. But recently since like the early-mid 2000s , the Lower Northeast, the Kensington section , and the Uptown section (Olney/Germantown) has been receiving Hispanics by the boatloads especially Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. In fact, many Puerto Rican and Dominican families moving to Philly from Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and other US states, mostly go to neighborhoods like Frankford, Juniata, Kensington, and Olney, few go to Fairhill, only like 20% .
Even tho Fairhill is the most Hispanic neighborhood in the city percentage wise, most of the neighborhood population is of Puerto Rican families who been there for generations, usually since like the 1950s n 60s, Philly"s equivalent of Nuyoricans. U want first generation Puerto Ricans and Dominicans straight from PR & DR , u guna have to go to the Lower Northeast and upper north philly.

Also Feltonville has absorbed many recent arrivals from PR and DR and Hunting Park has a very significant Hispanic population since the late 70s/early 80s However I am surprised about Hispanics in Germantown - I always thought of that being mainly African American except for the western part where some Caucasions are mixed in with the AAs. Olney has been a melting pot since the 80s so that is not surprising to me of that area having a significant populace of Hispanic

South Los Angeles is more hispanic than it was a few decades ago. Compton is now more hispanic than black. Riverside and San Bernardino were once white enclaves and are now predominately mexican. Several neighborhoods in D.C and atlanta are becoming whiter due to gentrification. St. Louis's Tower Grove South is becoming more mexican along with Bevo Mill and Carodolet. South Philly is more Latino and Asian then Italian. Hamtramck, Michigan is becoming less polish and more bengali and arab. Fort Bend County, Texas used to be a white majority county and now its one of the most diverse counties in the country.
