jcoltrane - Thanks for your insight into the history of Whitestone NY. I never knew Whitestone was built for returning vets funded on government money. That explains a lot.

I agree that this area will one day become Asian/Hispanic with a mix of hardworking europeans. The old timers here don't work hard NOR instill any sense of hard work in their children. All this is happening while the immigrant Asians and Hispanics are WORKING. Asians are working their kids in school. The Hispanics are doing all the menial work, which I think one day will translate into businesses and/or managerial positions (since they have all this know-how). Old timers here complain a lot and just want it how it was 60 years ago. Their kids don't seem all that academically stellar either. All they do, it seems, is play around with cars. I can't imagine too much future in that. I do feel sorry for them, they seem so stuck in the past.

Whitestone, NY is a safe, nice, clean place to live. You won't get mugged. But that's just the surface.

Unless the old-timers here wake up and realize we live in the 21st century and start competing globally and working REAL hard like the other immigrants, they're going to get left in the dust. This whole community will get bought out by the the asians/hispanics/or anyone else willing to work hard.
