Very good. Nostrand still has lots of culture attached to it.

But what happens when they all move out in 15-20 years due to rising rents and gentrification?

Then it’s like Little Italy, I suppose though less voluntary.

A lot of Haitians have been moving out to the suburbs voluntarily it seems like. There are a ton of Haitians where I live and they mostly came here before the hyper gentrification of NYC

Plus in Flatbush it seems like they're mostly being replaced by Mexicans and Pakistanis, neither of which are high income groups

Haitians, like Italians, will eventually move out on their own. Who knows, maybe one day the KKK will accept them too.

It's already been happening to an extent. BrooklynJo said one of his relative's buildings in Flatbush went from being all Haitian to all Mexican. Baldwin, Elmont, and Valley Stream have had large amounts of Haitians from Brooklyn and Queens for a while now.

Yea that’s true. The building is located on Foster and East 22nd.

Lots of blacks in the area but the area is more diverse now then it was back in 1998.
