The peoples and landscapes of Brooklyn, New York

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This borough of New York City has long been an important center for immigrants to the USA. Its history has been one of ethnic succession, e.g. Germans and Irish were displaced by Scandinavians and Italians in the late nineteenth century. Jews arrived between 1880-1920 and though still numerous there, have been followed by Blacks, Arabs and especially Puerto Ricans. In the 1970s, Russian Jews, several Antillean cultures, and Asians (Chinese and Korean) were well represented. Today Third world immigrants far outnumber people of European origin among the more than two million inhabitants. - (DWG)
