In the case of the LES, you have a greater reduction among the lower income strata, but a gain in higher income earners too.
I didn't know that... Thanks for the info.

Also do you guys remember the quote I put up... I can't even remember what it was but for some reason it was removed...

Many PRs are opting to remain in the city or metro area. Moving into better neighborhoods has been the practice for sometime now. Job market is better in NYC then most places. Lots of opportunity for mobility in this city due to ethnic seniority (political, economic, family ties) The poorest and lower middle income are most likely to leave now. Much of the PR growth outside NYC stems from islanders.

I don't know about that? Probably true to some extent. I know this one chick shes a wasp transplant from Orlando and she could not land a job back home because the market was flooded with new yorkers mostly puerto ricans who took most of the good aswell as high paying and low wage paying job. She left Orlando to nyc and got a job paying 50k a year being a chef.

Dude you seemed obsessed with talking about the mass exodus of Puerto Ricans in this city and disregarding anything that opposes that viewpoint... Did we do something to offend you?

I've been saying what kiddo said for sometime now... Granted, by you, I don't doubt that some of the second and third generation Puerto Ricans living in these bad areas are starting to move out but many Puerto Ricans are moving into working to working middle class areas throughout the city especially in Queens parts of the Bronx (Pelham Bay and Castle Hill comes to mind) and Brooklyn as well... While there are a number of Puerto Ricans that are choosing to move to other parts of this country and even back to Puerto Rico despite the problems over there, there's still a very large and steady group still remaining that I don't see leaving this city anytime soon...

A lot of ppl like to overexaggerate the amount of "real NYers" leaving the city and the number of transplants coming in.

I think you mean Throgs Neck. Castle Hill is the hood and has been predominately PR for a long time now.

Castle Hill is not all bad. The worst of it concentrates around the Castle Hill Houses and the El. Castle Hill Ave can be pretty gritty since it attracts such a diverse group, and it is largely composed of cheap stores. There are some pretty stable blocks in the area too. The neighborhood is a real mix of mostly lower middle income and households below or near poverty. You have 6 figure households owned by Puerto Ricans with lower middle class Dominican families renting the second unit, finally with newly arrived Mexican immigrant living in the apartment building adjacent. The Castle Hill PJs feel largely AA Black and Black Hispanic PRs and DRs. The PJs are very isolated and almost feel like a completely different neighborhood. I also know Italians, Irish, Indians and Arabs in that neighborhood. You can honestly divide that area up into at least three pieces.

Was going to say the same thing. Castle Hill has been Puerto Rican for decades.

I was wondering which neighborhoods in Queens and LI have a substantial Puerto Rican population? I don't ever recall a large concentration in Queens -- seems to be more Dominicans, South Americans and Mexicans but maybe I'm wrong. No clue about where they are on the island.

Anyone know?
