Those were around long ago. Check out Flatbush Ave near to Prospect Park. Millennial bars and loads of white folks, and that is rapidly moving south. Ditmas Park went black middle class in the late 80s but its gone back white again. The apartments on Cortelyou are attracting young whites.

I know but it seems to be a block by block thing. I was just on Church Ave yesterday, even directly East of the Q train station I barely saw any white people, and this is not too far away from the Victorian house blocks.

Haitian patties are better than Jamaican patties, right?

Lots of Haitians live in Rosedale. They've been there for a while.

Probably true, but have you been to the area in question? It's still a straight up black neighborhood for the most part. I think it will be like that for the forseeable future.

True, and lots of other neighborhoods for that matter (both Queens and Nassau).

How long is the foreseeable future? A year or two? People were jumping up and down in posts just a few years ago claiming no gentrification in Bedstuy, Bushwick, or Harlem. That’s been so throughly debunked only a total fool would even try to lie to say those places haven’t gentrified.

I remember reading that White developers wanted the name Little Haiti removed from Miami because it wouldn’t appeal to the new comers. That was speculation but given the history of how Haitians have been looked down upon I wouldn’t be surprise if it were true.

Now when you actually visit little Haiti in Miami it’s a very cultural community just like Little Havana!

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.
Other than the tenants who were probably mostly black were the homeowners in Ditmas always mostly white/Jewish?
