History

Early History

Although no known evidence remains in the Crown Heights vicinity, prior to the European colonization of the Americas large portions of what is now called Long Island including present-day Brooklyn were occupied by the Lenape, (later renamed Delaware Indians by the European colonizers). The Lenape lived in communities of bark- or grass-covered wigwams, and in their larger settlements—typically located on high ground adjacent to fresh water, and occupied in the fall, winter, and spring—they fished, harvested shellfish, trapped animals, gathered wild fruits and vegetables, and cultivated corn, tobacco, beans, and other crops.

Development in the 1880's

Crown Heights had begun as a posh residential neighborhood, a "bedroom" for Manhattan's growing bourgeois class. Beginning in the 1880s, many upper-class residences, including characteristic brownstone buildings, were erected along Eastern Parkway. Away from the parkway were a mixture of lower middle-class residences. This development peaked in the 1920s. Before World War II Crown Heights was among New York City's premier neighborhoods, with tree-lined streets, an array of cultural institutions and parks, and numerous fraternal, social and community organizations. Many second and third generation people of Jewish descent had settled in the area. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Mid-20th Century

Population changes began in the 1930s with immigrants from Jamaica, African Americans from the South in the 1940s and Haitians in the 1970s. Newer Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe also settled throughout the area.


In the mid-twentieth century, many of the more established residents left for newer housing and jobs in the suburbs. With increased apartment vacancies, property owners rented to tenants who would not have been able to afford the area earlier. Concurrently, the values of private homes began to fall. Both white and non-white middle class families felt compelled to move out before their houses were devalued further. Their places were taken by African Americans, later immigrants from the Caribbean, and Latinos.


The 1960's Through the Early '90's

The 1960s and '70s were a time of turbulent race relations. With increasing poverty in the city, racial conflicts plagued some New York neighborhoods. With its racially and culturally mixed populations, Crown Heights was mired in this strife. The neighborhood's relatively large population of Hasidic Jews comprised a prominent white minority who had stayed in the community after other whites left. Hasidim can refer to Saintly Pharisees Hasidic Judaism This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists other pages that might otherwise share the same title. ...


With increasing immigration from rural areas of the Caribbean, Crown Heights became an area of population with low skills for the urban environment. During the Johnson administration, Crown Heights was declared a primary poverty area due to a high unemployment rate, high juvenile and adult crime rate, poor nutrition for lack of family income, relative absence of job skills and readiness to work, and a relatively high concentration of elderly residents.


Violence has erupted in the neighborhood on more than one occasion, including during the New York City blackout of 1977. In 1991 there was an outbreak known as the Crown Heights Riot. TIME, July 25, 1977 “New York Blackout” redirects here. ... The Crown Heights Riot was a three-day riot in the Crown Heights neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. ...


Through the 1990s, crime, racial conflict, and violence decreased in New York. Urban renewal and gentrification began to change the face of Crown Heights, diversifying its population economically, socially, and racially. In San Francisco, during the mid-1960s, the bohemian center of the city shifted from the old Beat enclave of North Beach to Haight-Ashbury (pictured) as a response to gentrification. ...

Longstanding resentments, fears and sensational rumors fed on an automobile accident on 19 August 1991 at 8:30 pm and erupted into neighborhood violence. The accident involving a Jewish driver caused the injury of one Black child and death of another. After the police told a Jewish volunteer ambulance to remove the driver from the scene before a city ambulance took the injured children, African American and Caribbean residents took out their anger on Jewish residents. Stones and other objects were thrown by both sides, fires were set and shops were looted.

Current renaissance

Crown Heights today has extreme contrasts between lovely architecture and vacant, run-down buildings, and variety of peoples and shops, ranging from variously hatted and top-coated Lubavitcher residents to vegan rasta Afro-Caribbean restaurants. Rising real estate values and gentrification have also recently become part of this mix.[10]


Some real estate developers are already trying to increase prices of area housing. Crime rates remain relatively high, and racial tensions still exist. Murders, rapes, and other violent crimes dipped significantly in the mid-90s, and continue to fall.


NYC.GOV statistics for 2007 reveal that the 77th precinct, which includes a significant part of Crown Heights, has experienced a year-to-date decline of 40% in the number of murders (a total of 9, down from 15), and of 20% in the number of rapes (12, down from 15). However, felonious assaults and burglaries have increased significantly (16.8 and 24.8%, respectively)[11]


Demographics

As of 2007, of the approximately 150,000 residents in Crown Heights, 90 percent were of African descent (70 percent from the Caribbean and 20 percent of American birth), 8 percent were Hasidic Jews, and 2 percent were Latino, Asian and other ethnic groups.[12] Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...
