NEW YORK — The Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City, a historically Black neighborhood famously depicted in Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing,” is becoming more and more mixed due to a high influx of whites moving in.

The white migration has made rent prices higher and forced many African Americans to move from the neighborhood.

The New York Times reports:

From 2000 to 2010, the white population soared 633 percent — the biggest percentage increase of any major racial or ethnic group in any New York City neighborhood. In Central Harlem, meanwhile, the number of whites rose 400 percent, increasing their share of the population to 10 percent, up from 2 percent.

On Greene Avenue, down the block from Mr. Dunlea and Ms. Enck, a four-family town house is listed at $1.5 million. An area that epitomized racial tension around a pizza parlor in Spike Lee’s 1989 film “Do the Right Thing” is now home to several Zagat-rated restaurants and to Nice (as in France) Pizza, which features a “La Baltique” pie topped with smoked salmon and heavy cream ($20 for the 16-inch version).
