EMA above Gorgas Lane has also always been very diverse although EMA as a whole is about 80% AA. And the white population is actually pretty diverse, but yes maybe 40% Jewish if I had to guess.
EMA has been trending whiter though as a lot of the black middle class there moves on. mt airy is a very attractive area...if it weren't for the PSD I'm sure there would be no asterisks

I think that this has mostly has to do with the overall dwindling of the middle class in the city.
