As you drove through the nice 5 Towns did you seems to notice the Hasidic have taken over Lawrence and Woodmere running it down, did you notice that there are quite a few people of color in Hewlett? I personally love it!
If you drove past any of the bars in East Rock I am sure you saw some low lifes.
I can guarantee you that you surely did not drive past my house cause you would have seen me with a full set of teeth breaking my friggin but all weekend making my house nice.
Screw you snob!

Cedarhurst: median income for a household in the village was $56,441, and the median income for a family was $71,406. The per capita income for the village was $29,591. The racial makeup of the village was 90.74% White, 1.28% African American, 0.11% Native American, 3.08% Asian, 2.94% from other races, and 1.85% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 8.35% of the population.

East Rockaway: median income for a household in the village was $59,911, and the median income for a family was $78,363. The per capita income for the village was $30,601. The racial makeup of the village was 95.64% White, 0.61% African American, 0.03% Native American, 1.71% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 1.09% from other races, and 0.91% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 5.79% of the population.

I submit that neither village is "ghetto" or "trashy". They are both very nice places to live with similar demographics and incomes. Can you provide some form of evidence for your feelings other than "I saw this once"?

Dear Facts,
Brilliant, simply stated and most importantly, factual. I cannot thank you enough as where I got mad you got even with practicality.
To be honest, I think the median income of Cedarhurst has been seriously understated. A large portion of the 90.74% white population is Hasidic and Orthodox these days and unfortunately alot of income is not properly reported for various reasons.

You bigoted, anti gentile, pro semite, how dare you?
I for one do not want to be associated with anything or anyone in the 5 Towns and you needent wonder why us "dog faced" Irish can't stand you?
I can't wait till the nice Jewish area you speak of gets run down with your very own Orthodox and Hasid's. Wanna talk about Ghetto???
Kiss my freckles ass!

And good riddance to ya "Rocker", I am sure your block has only improved since you departed.
From me and the rest of the good folks of East Rock, from the tiny immaculate bungalo's of Bay Park to the lovely statley homes of Old East Rock.
I hope you never see a person of color for the rest of your miserable life cause diversity is bad right?
Whadda butthead, whadda embarassment to the human race you are!!!!

You've spent years trolling this forum waiting for articles that relate to East Rockaway in any way so that you can hurl insults at an area of land. I can't imagine anything thrashier than that class of behavior.

I think this may have started in responce to the higher then normal population of Blacks, spanish and indians that moved in to East Rockaway. it's the same thing in all towns around Long Island not much we can do about it. It effects some towns that were mostly white then they come in fast like East Rockaway.

East Rockaway is just changing with times, noting we can do. I just wish the streets were not so clogged with parked cars - I hear all the illegal appartments are the cause and 2 and 3 family dwellings.

But quality of life in East Rockaway has gone down a bit to be honest!

This is the most uninformed post in the entire forum. Again, here are the demographics for East Rockaway:

The racial makeup of the village was 95.64% White, 0.61% African American, 0.03% Native American, 1.71% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 1.09% from other races, and 0.91% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 5.79% of the population.

So the accusation that "blacks, spanish, and indian" people have overrun the village is simply a lie. And even if it were true, why is that even a problem? If they can afford to live here, how is that a threat to anyone or anything?

Now let's compare East Rockaway to the racial makeup of Beverly Hills:

As of the 2000 census, there were 33,784 people. The racial makeup of the city was 85.1% White, 7.10% Asian, 1.80% African American, 1.50% from other races, 0.10% Native American and 4.60% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race.

So the evidence demonstrates that East Rockaway is whiter than *Beverly Hills*, which has among the highest property values in America. Furthermore, Long Island ranks among the most segregated areas of the country (Source: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/02/24/long-i... ) Are you saying it needs to be more segregated?

I've lived in ER my whole life and I don't know of a single block with more than one "dark-skinned" family. What street was it?

All evidence points to the opposite of what you're saying. As home values collapsed all over the US, as well as Long Island, East Rockaway was one of the few communities where values remained strong. Source: http://www.newsday.com/classifieds/real-estat...

The ball is now in your court to present evidence to support your "slum" claim.

I'll cast aside the unlikelihood of your story and assume there is an actual home somewhere in East Rockaway with dark skinned people on each side.

You're saying you would rather move than live near people of a different race and you have the audacity to call your non-racist neighbors who stayed "trash"?

1) FACTS is 100% correct and backs it up with statistics.
2) Who needs a neighbor like E ROCKER? I sure don't need his narrowmindedness and would take a dark person over him as a neighbor any day! Remember E ROCKER that once upon a time your decendents were considered undesireable also only to break their butt as immigrants to make a life so 2 generations from now they could spawn an ignorant biggot like you!
3)Who the hell is FATTY CHICK and what does she base her facts on? Is she upset cause we only have 1 fastfood restaurant in East Rock?
