I know this area well, grew up here. Some are educated and wealthy, but very few. You'll see a handful of middle/upper as you get near Whitestone/Bayside and towards GN, like you said, but the vast majority of Flushing is lower class, almost poor actually. Flushing is now known mostly for old Asian bottle ladies roaming through the gutters and people's garbage at 5am. For every millionaire that moves into one of the new high rises, there are 1000 arrivals poor as heck, living 10 to a house.

I believe Asians, overall, are now the poorest group in NYC based on stats I read recently.

This thread is a bit inaccurate, too many opinions, not enough facts, visiting a certain part of the neighborhood twice a year doesn't mean you understand it well.

Sheepshead bay is mostly European, with a swarm of Uzbeki's that have been immigrating in recent years. The Chinese do own many houses, surrouding ave U, usually they tend to stick close to their Chinatown area. Same as the Chinese in Borough Park that crowd around 8th and 13th ave's.

What hasn't been mentioned in this thread is the volume of Yemen people moving into Sheepshead bay, especially since a new Mosque has been built on Voorhies, between 28th and 29th.

Still, Sheepshead reminds a very nice area, with summer attractions around emmons ave, and the close by Manhattan beach area....

With that being said, Sheepshead bay can be Majority, Russian, Chinese and/or Yemen populated in a decade, hard to tell.

One thing I will point out, the Chinese blocks are easy to spot, they maintain their property very well, its always clean, even when they put out garbage, its nicely organized.

Are these Russians eastern Ortho, or are we talking about Russian Jews?

Simple matter of math. Chinese immigrating into NYC is 10 times the amount of the other 2 groups you mentioned, every single year now. And it's not just Avenue U. Look at the amount of Chinese businesses popping up on Sheepshead Bay Road in the last 5 years. It's pretty amazing.


The Chinese are taking over around the train stations......

Sure, but the Chinese are immigrating into multiple neighborhoods rather than just Avenue U so it's a lot more distributed. Aside from the various Chinatowns within the city, they're also scattered into smaller communities as well as a large professional or college student contingent mostly in various parts of Manhattan. There's a spread with the other two groups, too, but I doubt nearly as large a spread.

But the fact is they have already established a small Chinatown on Avenue U over the last 15 years, and all you have to do is ride the Sheepshead Bay trains to see their increasing numbers at the Sheepshead, Neck Road and Ave U stops. The Russian immigration to the area is waning now (not like 10-20 years ago when it was huge every year) while the Chinese immigration is increasing.

They are already established in Sheepshead and moving in. Look what the Chinese have done for Sunset Park and Bensonhurst home values. It has been wonderful. Sheepshead Bay is inevitable
