Most of the business' are Dominican owned. from the music my neighbors blast, I'd say they were Dominican too.
I do see quite a few Colombian and Mexican flags hanging up, but by far they are in the minority.

Current trend:
There is a disproportionate influx of Asians, especially of Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese. Not to be taken lightly, this is not a flood but a TSUNAMI. Queens, especially Rego Park, Maspeth, Middle Village, Jackson Heights, Forest Hills are changing daily. Incredible overbuilding and multi-hole dwellings are getting constructed everywhere to accomodate new Chinese- it is something to behold. The attached negatives to this trend are too much to list, quality of life is spiraling down out of control. Locals with ability to move sell but the ones with no income are forced to stay and face the consequence. Overcrowding, dust, construction noise and air pollution, schools crammed with children, and general lack of culture is a norm here. The city is commiting social " genocide " of its own history and well-being. The place resembles the worst cities of ASIA. Other groups that tend to take-over are the Muslims (especially of Pakistanian and Malaysian descent), Central Asians including Soviet Asian Ex Republics,
Indians, and to a smaller degree Eastern European nationalities - mostly Polish.

but these "locals" will likely be moving into other areas, whose locals with the ability will sell and move, but the ones that can't are forced to stay and face the consequence.

To clarify, most of the locals that sell their dwellings, are usually older and do have established second homes either in Florida or within elderly gated communities. Also, they are the sole occupiers of their homes. Asian immigrants, on the other hand, are moving in with their extended families, multiplying population by a factor of x4 on the average. In addition, Americans that move out usually go into well dispersed areas and do not congregate in one FOCUSED geographic area known as Chinatown. Taking over private homes is not the main issue here, it is the population density brought-in by incredible new construction of apartment buildings that leave no space for anything but overcrowding.

Silly question, why question one "evil" with another ? Brownsville was always there, its risk was always known and effected the local area. However, the people that live there were never in Queens nor have financial capability or incentives to move.

Flushing has Tsunami from mainland China as well and many are illegal. Over crowded every where, in 2 br apt living with strangers women and men each other more than 8 people in one apartment and constantly change to new people in and out. Some kind of underground railroad business going on !
Neighborhood has been changed a lot. Used to be nice and peaceful but not anymore. Pushing waiting on bus line, putting hands or pushing with bag on someone's back when getting off or on bus or train, walk right at people and hit then walk by on sidewalk, don't know how to walk sidewalk, spitting on middle of sidewalk, screaming on cell phone in the public transportation, picking nose, stare at people's face when you walking by on sidewalk as if he/she has no understanding of how to act socially, nasty and discriminate non-Chinese customers when you shop at Chinese stores, etc..... so much and led many old neighbors disgusted their behavior so many old neighbors left Flushing but Chinese keep going into other Asian community as well. Found many Chinese are very rough, vicious, aggressive, shrewd, very very sneaky, very selfish, very arrogant, very rude, very manipulative and nasty and stick together. They don't believe in public concession whatsoever because of over populated environment they've lived in China.

Wow, so many stereotypes packed in one sentence. How many times can you say "very"? I'm not sure what you mean by "very, very sneaky." you mean in coming here illegally?
