We are happy to announce the launching of a new initiative at the CLACLS. It’s called the Urban Series. During this Spring semester, we’ll be releasing three reports dealing with the Latino population in New York City and its surrounding areas, focusing on gentrification, inequality, and transitions over time.

The first one studies the changes in the traditional Latino neighborhoods of Jackson Heights and Corona, in Queens.

The findings shown in the graph above may come as a surprise to some. In short, the Latino community of Jackson Heights/Corona is not being displaced in any meaningful way. Want to learn more? Read the full report here and the press release here.
