Actually, there are some areas that are almost completely evenly mixed between Whites, Blacks, and Latinos. South Ozone Park is one of those areas.

There are also some areas where 2 races make up the majority of the people there. Northeast Queens has a lot of Whites and Asians, and Elmhurst/East Elmhurst has a lot of Hispanics and Asians.

I definitely wouldn't say it is as segregated as Long Island.

I hate it when people start a thread and don't post again. Bad online etiquette.

While true in some parts, not so in others. South Ozone Park does not really have any white sections left (Ozone Park does though). The overwhelming majority now is more West Indian, whether they be black or Indian Guyanese. My father has lived in this section of Queens for 30 years and he has seen a huge transformation to a Guyanese area. Walter: I know Thomaston is not officially a town.

The areas that I was talking about that are still segregated are Howard Beach, which is mostly white; and parts of Jamaica, which has a majority black area and another part which has a majority hispanic area. Forest Hills, a majority white Jewish area; and Richmond Hill, a majority West Indian area. So, Queens is as diverse as lets say a Brooklyn in some areas but others, especially eastern Queens, is as diverse (read - segregated) as some areas in Nassau. Bayside, with its Asians and whites, is in keeping with some of the Northwestern towns in Nassau, such as Thomaston.

...just bad on-line manners. I wonder what college will be the first to offer a course in on-line etiquette. That is of course if one is not already offered.

As part of their three week free orientation program to determine if one is academically worthy to attend their prestigious school (sarcasm dripping), the University of Phoenix uses one week of that time teaching everyone to play nice in the sandbox when using the internet forums needed for online learning.

With that budget, you'll be fine no matter where you decide on. In my opinion, Long Islanders discriminate more on income and social status then they do on race. In other words, if you can afford the neighborhood most people won't have a problem. And, if they do, it's their problem not yours.

yes I tend to agree, however, my wife is a teacher and she feels it's important that our kids are not the only (half) black kids in the school. we know it won't be 50% black, but alot of schools/neighborhoods we've looked at our 1% or thereabouts.

You may want to take a look at Valley Stream or Rockville Center.
