For sure, the neighborhood is gentrifying. Good thing they designated it as "Little Haiti" before it completely gentrified!

True. I notice a gradient where the neighborbood gets more black the further you get from Coney Island Ave. While East of Flatbush Ave like you said feels like East Flatbush demographically.

No, it's not.

What I mean it, good thing they designated it Little Haiti before it COMPLETELY became NOT Little Haiti (because it will become that way in the next several years)

True, but enclaves come and go anyway. Little Italy is basically just a tourist trap now. And The Bronx one also seems to be for local tourists rather than a true Little Italy.


As for that part of Flatbush though, I think the larger demographic change will be more Mexicans and South Asians. But that's just my guess.


I also think there are a lot of places that will remain Little Haitis for a long time, such as Elmont and Baldwin.

There are already lots of Mexicans there. But the neighborhood will become more white, just like Ditmas Park, PLG, Crown Heights, etc.

Probably, but I predict that the Latino/Asian population increase in Eastern Flatbush (not East Flatbush) will be more notable in the coming years than the increase in whites.

It"s not like white people live in the entirety of those neighborhoods in large numbers. Even the area by the Church Ave Q station is overwhelmingly nonwhite still.

The area by the Church Avenue Q station IS Flatbush. That's what we are talking about.
It is currently mostly black, but white people are moving in and will continue to move in.

Ditmas Park is mostly white at this point (at least it seems so to me).

PLG is getting significantly white (a significant minority).

Crown Heights has seen a huge influx of white residents.

There are Asians in Kensington along Coney Island Avenue and Church Avenue and further down, Cortelyou, etc, but I don't necessarily see them moving into Flatbush as much as white people.

The area in question is between Flatbush and Nostrand Ave, from Parkside Ave to Ave H, which does not include any Q stops. I don't think that part of Flatbush has many white people yet, except the Northernmost portion maybe.

Side note, I don't think East Flatbush will become white any time soon. Every time I'm there I barely see anyone who isn't black.

Yes the northernmost portion is Prospect Lefferts Gardens
