^^^ Easy. Lets say if you went to NYU Law. And you majored in Financial Law. When they graduate, these guys are in line for jobs making about 120k a year. Crazy. but true.

I think Rachel means undergrad! And with law school, only grads in a two 5 or 10 school get those Cravath, Paul Weiss and Skadden jobs...very few outside of Top 5 or 10 get those!

When someone who is an "outsider" moves in, the historical population either protest or usually move out.
Beiruit is a pretty big city. You bring up New York, London, Paris, and eventually, you bring up Beiruit. It's the equivalence of Paris, only in the Middle East. That's what got it the nickname "Paris of the Middle East"!

Anyway, Arabs have been living in Bay Ridge for 30 years, maybe earlier if you count the 19th/early 20th century immigrants. It hasn't changed the neighborhood from being an Italian/Irish one.

I don't know about the financial sector, but being in technology, some companies like Google would pay well above $80k (roughly the same for both their Manhattan and Silicon Valley offices) for an entry-level fresh college graduate for new software engineers.

I know, but I personally know of people who moved out of Bay Ridge because they feel it have become too "Arabic".

I guess there's a reason why they were voted top company to work for in fortune magazine. I don't work there, but I know people that do, and the $80k starting salary is not even the beginning of how good they treat their engineers.

Some of my friends (yes, most of them might be considered yuppies) who work in tech divisions of investment banks make a starting salary of slightly less at around $60k, but catch up with insultingly large bonuses.

It's kind of funny how that works. Based on studies I've done, a lot of Arabs came to America before most Irish and Italians did, but recent immigration from the gulf has pinned an image that all Arabs are Muslims and immigrants and I hate it.

I'm of Lebanese descent. Can someone please tell me what it is about Arab-Americans that most people tend to not like? It bothers me a great deal.

Very well stated!
