Its amazing to hear that the ethnic neighborhoods are still around.

I agree - there are many neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens that I am familar with where only vestiges remain, e.g. the neighborhood in Queens near my ON's house (which was my Dad's house) which also was very Polish when we lived there but now is very diverse. But there are still a couple of Polish butcher shops and bakeries to be found -- however, it seems that all of the Polish restaurants are gone.

Another example here in Manhattan is Little Italy and Chinatown which have kind of merged and become "Asiatown" due to the influx of other Asian groups, including Korean and Vietnamese.

Happy 'loon day,too!

Thanks, Bob.
