Plea deals are getting out of control. This dude killed a man.



Disgusting----a near 70 year man beaten to death because of catcalling ---while what appears to be the subject of catcalling attempts to stop the perpetrator.

Default Forest Hills residents

Be aware. AA suspects in hate crime against white male. This is usually a quiet neighborhood.

Race relations will just keep on getting worse and worse.

Im still confused as to how Flushing turned Asian

It was mostly White until the 1980s from what I understand

What made them leave

I'm not sure.. It's before my time. My family was still living in upstate and we didn't make the move to NYC yet. I think it was mostly white with a small enclave of Japanese but by the late 70's, it started to become increasingly more black bringing increasingly more crime so white people & the Japanese started to look elsewhere. That left things open for Asians, mostly Koreans to move in to fill the gap which pushed out blacks. They later got pushed out further east by the Northern Blvd/Long Island area by the Chinese which is now modern Flushing. I think that's what happened as was told by long time Flushing residents to me.

Yeah but where were Black people moving to in Flushing that made White people want to move? Besides NYCHA and maybe Colden Street, thats the only place that I know in Flushing proper where Black people might live. This is the one NYC puzzle to me that makes no sense. Usually when neighborhoods turn like that, that means Flushing should have looked like southeast Queens now.

Hmmm....
I think blacks made their presence know in the 41st Ave, Roosevelt Ave, and Main Street areas. I recall long time neighbors telling me that Roosevelt Ave (where Macy's at currently & where all the buses are) used to have Woolworths, Alexander's and Macy's was called something else back then, I think Gertz.

Anyway, they told me the dept. stores were having incidents of theft and general mayhem so much so that they put signs out saying "no teens are allowed in unaccompanied by an adult past 8 pm" or something like that & smaller stores started shutting down. So all that spooked whites (they sensed the neighborhood was in decline) so when Koreans started coming in expressing interest they quickly sold their property at rock bottom prices to them. They were that desperate to get out. (Now, why Koreans initially targeted Flushing as the place to settle down is anyone's guess. I don't know). And that's when Flushing started to turn increasingly more Korean with Koreans moving in and setting up shop which drove up property prices and the blacks got priced out. I'm guessing. It later attracted the Chinese and now the Koreans are out.

Some old time Flushing residents say that the Koreans "saved" the area because it was headed downhill with increasing crime.
If Koreans didn't come in, Flushing may have turned out to be more like Southeast Queens.

Ok, so why aren't the Blacks still in that area of Flushing??

It doesnt seem that way.
