I read an article not to long ago and different agencies were doing census estimates during the mid-200s. What they found about the hispanic population was surprising. Apparently, they saw very modest gains in the Puerto Ricans population during the middle of the decade. In 1990, NYC has about 880,000 Puerto Ricans. In 2000, this fell sharply to 789,000. I think in 2006, the agency estimated about 770,000. This was actually between 2001-2003, so there was a small increase.

Meanwhile the Dominican population was somewhat at a standstill. They found that between 2004-2006, there was only a small increase in the Dominican population, and that in 2006, it stood a little over 600,000. Mexicans meanwhile continue to grow at a huge rate. There were about 180,000 to 190,000 in 2000, and are expected to easily number 300,000 come the 2010 census.

I seem to recall that a reason why the black population in NY was dropping was because the African American population was dropping and immigration from the Afro-Caribbean nations has been stagnant since 2000. Though I read this over a year ago before the earthquake so I do not know the situation with the Haitians as of this year.

Many black americans in nyc are going back down south to live. I'm not sure if you guys heard about this many Harlem church congregations don't have much members no more because many Harlem residents have left due to gentrification or packed bags and went back passed the mason dixon line. Some of these Harlem chuches may have to close down or link up with other churches to survive. This was on ny1 and also in the papers. Ever since 2001 us has changed their immigration policy. So it is more difficult for people to go and obtain visas and aplly for green cards espicially in the carribbean like jamaica and dr.
