03/25/11 Where The Hell Is The Westmore News? Despite A Growing Hispanic Population, Port Chester Has Became Less Diverse

Once Again The Westmore Snooze Is A Sleep At The Switch As Port Chester Roundup, Port Chester Patch And The Journal News Deliver The Latest News To Port Chester Residents.

Port Chester Roundup Provides Village Residents With News Analysis While Westmore Snooze Publisher Richard "My Daddy Gave Me This Newspaper After Forgeting To Pay Over 100 Tax Bills" Able Is In A Self Induced Coma.

Westchester is one of the most diverse counties in New York, according to a Port Chester Roundup analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data released Thursday.

Westchester is the fifth most diverse county in New York

Yet, Port Chester with a high numbers of minorities is not the most diverse village in the county.

Historical census data shows that Port Chester has slowly became dominated by one minority group and year after year has fewer non-Hispanic white residents.

The government numbers show that shifting demographics that have bought a greater mix of races and ethnicities to the county and the region has passed by Port Chester, as it has became less diverse.

Census data shows that more and more of Port Chester's white and African American population is moving out and going South or going into alternative places to retire, and they're being replaced by mostly Latino residents as they leave the village.

It is clear that the people moving out of Port Chester don't look exactly exactly like the people moving into Port Chester and this has a caused a tension that has generated a national headlines and federal court cases.

Through this transition Port Chester must learn that diversity is important, but even more critical is that different village groups must learn about one another and must learn to work together to solve the villages problems.

Diversity means more than co-existing.

It means respecting each other's traditions, working together to build a better community.

This means that Hispanics must respect local Italian traditions / sensibilities and longtime Italian residents must respect the new Hispanic traditions and sensibilities.

And both of these groups must respect the traditions and sensibilities of the other much smaller groups in Port Chester.

This is a challenge that Port Chester must meet head on as it becomes less and less diverse in the coming years.

The Westchester communities of Elmsford, Peekskill, Yonkers, Ossining are more diverse than Port Chester.

The Rockland County communities of Haverstraw, Spring Valley, West Haverstraw are also more diverse than Port Chester.

Hispanics, Hasidics increase

A marked increase in the number of Hispanic and Hasidic residents fueled population surges in several Lower Hudson Valley villages, according to Census 2010 figures released Thursday.

Three suburban communities emerged with a majority or Hispanic residents: Port Chester, now 59 percent Latino; Brewster, 56 percent; and Sleepy Hollow, 51 percent.

"I think that for a long time now, it's always been assumed that we were the majority (in Port Chester)," said Blanca Lopez, who became the first Hispanic resident elected to office in Port Chester when she was voted on to the school board two years ago. "But now this really confirms it."....
