Growth in suburban diversity in the New York City region between 2000 and 2010 has created a band-like shape of diverse communities surrounding Manhattan and neighboring boroughs.

The most noticeable changes occurred in New Jersey, where multiple sections transformed, becoming concentrations of predominantly nonwhite residents; meantime, a substantial number of predominantly white regions became more racially diverse.

Harrison, for instance, saw the share of communities of color jump to 65 percent in 2010, up 12 percent. Other cities with stark change were part of Long Island, changing from predominantly white.

 

The inner suburbs of New York City, including Tuckahoe and Scarsdale, are also changing, becoming more integrated but at a much slower rate, suggesting that these neighborhoods have a greater possibility of remaining integrated, the report’s writers suggested.

The New York metropolitan region experienced a 8.9 percent increase in population in the past decade, growing to more than 19 million according to the city’s report.
