Homecrest History & Culture
The neighborhood has long had a substantial Italian population. Still, it has also seen an inflow of immigrants from Latin America, China, Israel, Syria, Russia, other former Soviet republics, and South Asia. A tiny but developing Chinese community near the Avenue U metro station may be found.
The region is limited to the north and south by the streets of Kings Highway and Avenue X, respectively; it is also bounded to the east and west by Ocean Avenue and Coney Island Avenue. Avenue U is located inside this region and is the location of growing Asian immigration and settlement, indicating that it is on its way to becoming a central Chinatown. This Chinatown was around 10 blocks in size as of 2011, comparable to the size of Manhattan’s Chinatown in the early 1800s. The “most recent” influxes of immigrants to this area (the 1990s and 2000s) are not exclusively Chinese since numerous Asian ethnicities appear to be migrating to this area. From the street, it’s pretty easy to tell where Avenue U Chinatown is; the abundance of Chinese food shops, restaurants, and nail salons, for example, is clear proof that Chinese people reside there.
Homecrest has grown to become Brooklyn’s second-biggest Chinatown, and given that it was founded less than two decades ago, we may reasonably assume that it still has a lot of room for growth. When compared to Manhattan’s Chinatown, this enormous geographical area will undoubtedly allow this Chinatown to develop itself as well as the Chinatown that we know.
