Its only a matter of time before that part of manhattan gentrifies as well. Upper manhattan is one of the last remaining areas. The public streets belong to the public btw...

Then again it was a hot day she was probably off to the pool.

I guess since I grew up around them all the time, maybe I got desensitized, or maybe Ive traveled too much. But I dont see what the big deal is about Dominican women. I find many homely. Different strokes for different folks...Plus i cant help but feel like people In this thread are starting to stereotype like crazy now...

@ Nooyowkur depends on what you mean by gentrify... East Harlem, Wash Heights and Inwood have already experienced gentrification but if you tell me that you think that by gentrification they will become majority white or even close to that areas... I highly doubt that...(also people are talking about the white population in Wash Heights as if that's solely the new crowd when the reality was and is that there is a significant jewish population before and still there)... I'll give you at best a Clinton Hill/Fort Greene type of scenario but too many projects and/or concentrated poverty in one area to fully get better... And as for Harlem people still don't realize that while the white population did skyrocket in the 2000s... there percentage is still around 10% maybe a little more... About 65& of the population of Harlem overall is still black and then the other 25% is hispanic... So while I do agree that Harlem has experienced some serious gentrification and there are parts over there that are near complete gentrification, alot of it still remains the same in terms of demographics and the people living there...

Thanks for doing us that favor. You only have yourself to blame for your experience, although I do have to say those "harlemnewbie" posts were quite hilarious.
Lol hahahaha, no one can never forget harlem newbie. I remember she was complaning about harlem and she needed to move, and then shd fell in love with another transplant who was broke but majoring in business. Man time can sure fly.

Gentrification doesnt automatically mean becoming majority white, tsk tsk anon. The reason I believe wash heights in particular will gentrify is because its already starting to happen in nearby areas. I frequent these areas regularly. In wash heights as soon as the old dominican family croaks or moves out the landlords are remodeling and raising rents. There is the instant microwave billyburg type of gentrification and there is also the more gradual one that you see in upper manhattan. Manhattan is becoming totally unaffordable to working people.
