I don't see the relevance of this post to Elmont.
Even though Elmont has had a large change in racial makeup within the last few decades, Elmont still looks decent (most ppl still keep their homes up and keep their properties well-maintained), schools still have reasonably good performance which shows the community is still very stable. There has been a noticeable spike in crime but you have to keep in mind that most of the offenders come from NYC, so you can't blame the area residents whom MAY happen to share their same ethnic background.
But to be fair, there have been other communities that have not faired so well after ethnic shifts..like Hempstead for example.
Honest reply from a lifelong white elmont native who recently retired upstate. Take it easy :)

The monkeys have invaded and taken over Elmont. It's a ghetto now ...what a shame.
