There is an increasing migration of Chinese speakers moving to East Harlem. Do you think eventually the Chinese speakers will outnumber the Spanish speakers living/working in the area?

From the looks of the patterns of immigrant/first generation Chinese migration?

I would say yes.

Not at all.

Mexicans are moving into East Harlem at higher rates and also have much higher birthrates.

The article states the increases is small, but noticeable in public housing. And not in luxury or high priced, which I assume is going to be any vacant unit in even the old dilapidated pre-war buildings.

Can recent immigrants even apply for public housing? Pardon my ignorence, but public housing is usually gubment assisted rents payments like section 8 and such correct? Or is there public housing where the tenant pays all the rent?

A lot of non english speaking people live in the projects. How they get a lease to move in is anyone's guess.

As long as they are citizens or permanent residents they can apply to live in the projects. Some case worker helped them with the application, that's easy.

Well, a friend once told me that alot depends on the ethnicity of the Super.

She got what she needed when the ethnicity of the Super was the same as hers in the public housing she lived in. Her apartment became crowded once her daughter started having children, so she applied for a 3 bedroom (bare in mind there were now like 5 people in her family at the time she made the application), the Supers ethnicity had changed to a different branch of the same colored tree, and although new tenants who were the same ethnicity as the new Super were getting the 3 bedrooms she had applied for, she wasnt getting anywhere.

She deduced that it was based on ethnicity as to why an upgrade seemed out of reach to her.

You'd be surprised how well the Chinese keep up.

This will be a Mexican/Central American enclave long before it becomes Chinese. And if you look at places just a little further north, 138th street in the Southern Bronx, the impact of the Mexican community is strong and they have been taking over for some time. As the PRs and Blacks have moved up and out, they have been replaced with Mexican/Central Americans, at least following the 6 line north from East Harlem.

But hey crazier things have happened. I didn't think I would ever, never, ever see anyone of the "white" spectrum in my area, and yet here they are, liking it, and multiplying.

I guess you would like to apply the communist chinese-style family policy on them if that is an option...just a guess.
