Orchard street in the 80's still had that vibe.
guess i missed it. still amazed that in the 20s the jewish population in the city was nearing 30% of the total. though a rough estimation based on 2010 census data has jews at 37% of non-hispanic white new yorkers while at about 12% of the population overall. latinos were at 28% black 25% asian 13% non-hispanic white 33%.
if it wasnt for bagels it would be a pretty big cuisine fail.
