Aren't all the Asians in Flushing and China town?

Cause there really isn't that many Asians here. I go on for weeks without seeing one.

A better thread would be why are there so many hispanics in NYC? Atleast they're about 30% and growing.

Maybe a better way of asking is why they choose here rathe than anywhere else....

I think it may just be because of the general diversity NYC has, and the fact that since there is a Chinese base already, many feel comfortable coming to a city that not only has store clerks that speak their languages, but TV and Radio stations as well.....

As for other asian cultures, many of them are starting to move to the "burbs. Hell, the Japanese were the ones I remember seeing first in the 'burbs. But the ones that seem to be moving en-force are the Koreans. Lots of Korean Baptist churches popping up here and there.

The only sad part I see is when I drive along the road in Oakland (NJ) and I see a group of Korean kids, ALL KOREAN, walking together. Sad in two related ways. That there seems to be a grouping of similar cultural backgrounds, and probably a passive exclusion by others.

Where's their token white kid?
