    Brooklyn black residents

    According to data from last year’s Census, the Black population in a number of Brooklyn neighborhoods like Fort Greene and Clinton Hill has decreased by one-third over the last decade.

    NY1 reports:

    The findings also reflect a trend in black migration to the suburbs. New York City’s black population declined by 2 percent. It is the first time since the Civil War draft riots that the overall black population fell in the city.

    With gentrification in full force across the Brooklyn landscape, demographics are shifting. Borough President Marty Markowitz says Brooklyn will always be home to a large, vibrant African-American population.
