Whether it's the drug game or the DDP's and Trinitarios, Dominicans are affecting the area.

I know not all Dominicans are drug dealers.....but coming poor from the Heights (or the Island) the young ones especially are up to no good.
I doubt it. The Dominican migration trend has been ongoing for a few years now. It's not like it just happened last year or something.

SuperMario....I agree that Dominicans are taking over...I see it quite a bit even where I am. In fact my upstairs neighbor is a young Dominican str8 outta school, single in a big 2 bedroom apt and a doggie, an IT guy for a major pharma company making really really good money. He replaced a welfare mother of 2 who moved to Florida...and I see this change in population occuring over and over again in Mott Haven. It's not white people that are gentrifying/revitalizing areas like Mott Haven, Melrose, etc....it is people of color!

The orginal migration was to Highbridge, Morris Heights, University Heights and West Fordham. More recently they have migrated upwards to Kingsbridge Heights, Marble Hill, Norwood and Bedford Park. Trust me if this migration into the north-west Bronx has been going on for a while, there would not be a strong white population still there. The high rents in Washington Heights/Inwood is a recent occurence too.

Nice. But Mott Haven, Melrose, Hunts Point and East Tremont are Puerto Rican strongholds. I doubt that Domicans would cause Puerto Rican flight lol. Puerto Ricans went through the worst time-period and stood there ground. A few Dominicans here and there is nothing to them.

But guy, for every male Dominican you have that is succesful, you have about 4 who are drug dealing criminals. You can not deny this. Especially the ones coming from Washington Heights/Inwood or the Dominican itself.

Yeah but you made it seem like that would be the cause for a small spike in crime over the course of a year. Pretty ridiculous assertion, if you ask me.

Actually crime has steadily increased in the 50th for a couple of years. It just did not happen overnight. Also how can you explain the spike in crime then?

The whites are at fault lol

I don't know dude, maybe. I'm not a crime fanboy like you and FutureCop. I don't obsess over these stats like that. But I don't make those type of assertions either without first looking at actual demographic stats that would link a certain ethnic group to a rise in crime.

My nickname IS the Dominican dandy. Im sorry but I chill with alot of the drug dealing Dominicans. Is all good and fun but...at the end of the day all I see from my hood are drug dealers. Most of them of the Dominican kind.

You should be familiar with Dominican drug dealing....being from Fordham and all.

Yeah I'm familiar with them. But I'm also familiar with a lot of decent hard working as well as educated and professional Dominicans. A lot of the latter group being close friends and family. You need to stop hanging out in the street so much, before you get caught out there...Dandy.
