The first wave were Italians, Jewish, and Irish people. As More puerto ricans and Blacks came to the bronx they started to move out from the Bronx. After Puerto ricans came the Dominicans started to come. I think the next wave of hispanics will be Mexicans. I have see that there are more Mexicans in the Bronx since 2000's. What do you guys think?

Not many Mexicans around Pelham Parkway,though there are some.
Around here it feels like the biggest groups of new immigrants are Eastern European (Albanian,Russian,etc) followed by Asian and Africans.

It might not be easy to predict exactly who will settle in The Bronx, but you can pretty well say for sure that new communities will be established. That's the history of New York City--every neighborhood in every borough has gone through major changes since Day One. It happens every generation or two.

It's a tossup between Albanians (who are in Morris Park, Van Nest, Pelham Parkway, Allerton, and Belmont), West Africans (Morrisania, Concourse, Tremont, Highbridge, Morris Heights), and Mexicans (Mott Haven, Concourse, Bedford Park, Fordham)

I think West Africans. I think I read that cities like Houston and down in South Florida are receiving sizeable African populations from Africa. Seems like the Bronx could be a NY spot that as well for African immigrants.

I would say Mexicans have already been swarming in, especially during the construction boom of the last 10 years or so. I have noticed more Africans and Asians, as for Albanians, they have been here for sometime in relatively small numbers. It's somewhat hard to guess, but as the old guard continue to move out (PRs, Italians, Blacks), they will likely be replaced with SOME Eastern Europeans, Asians and Africans.

I could see some more Asians coming and maybe some new Hispanic groups.

maybe the cycle can be restarted--with the irish economy getting hit harder than ours, maybe the irish will come back to the bronx en masse.

Actually,friends and relatives in Woodlawn tell me this is already happening. And the Irish have such a good support network in The Bronx this will probably continue... plus they speak excellent English.Most of them will wind up in Woodlawn or just across McLean Avenue in Yonkers.

Don't forget,however,that the legal immigration channels are heavily slanted in favor of Eastern Europeans and Asians and against Western Europeans and Central Americans.One of the reasons why the Albanians and Asians are becoming more and more noticeable in The Bronx is because they are still pouring in ... legally... with immigration visas in hand.
This is a much easier path than the one for the various illegal groups.... including the Irish.

I think that value-seeking young people who don't mind a little - err, I mean a lot - of grit will follow the prophet SobroGuy and establish a self-sustaining colony in the South Bronx. The local residents will divide between a) welcoming these newcomers and their money, and b) moving up to Wakefield and Mount Vernon to escape the evil gentrifiers usually of lighter hues.
