    Canarsie changing from mostly white to mostly black (West Indian)...

    I'm a bit mixed about the changing demographics of Canarise. While most of the blacks that haved to Canarsie have been mainly West Indians from Flatbush and Crown Heights, at the same time, many whites are moving out and moving either to SI or LI. When I went to school in Canarsie High School in the mid 90's, there were mostly whites (Italian and Jewish) with significant populations of blacks and Latinos. Now it seems the opposite, being mostly black. I personally feel that Canarsie had a chance to become a racially diverse neighborhood than what it's become.

    Thank you very much. But it's not riff raff moving it the people they were moving it were working middle class West Indian people. I remember when we first moved on the Paerdegat side it was most Jews I said to my mom it will be black 10 years time I just hope it's not as bad as flatbush, some twelve years later and Canarsie isn't that bad. And Ave L is thriving not dying like how it once was.

    Yeah when I was in high school that was a prediction that a lot of "hobo's" would move into New York and out of the midwest and south.

    I never said the problem was with WI people owning homes. I said the problem is that this was a potential to be another diverse Brooklyn community, that's all (Like Kensington, parts of Flatbush, Midwood).

    NO just giving the term my sociology professor used. He said white trailer trash of the south "hobo's" would come and take over new yok at least there offspring will graduate college and look for work in New York bringing their family with them. And what he predicted is very true. You have a lot of "poor whites" in what was once considered poor black neighborhoods"
