Its greatest diversity is its’ completion with concrete to form an even greater force. More than 65 percent of the population is made up of immigrants all over the world. Majority of the residents are Hispanic, 15 percent white, 10 percent black and approximately 20 percent South and East Asians, all safely sheltered within this skeletal structure. Like steel, culture can be shown in many forms. As you walk down the streets you’ll see different clothing styles, different languages spoken, and variety of restaurants.
Though Brooklyn is not as much diverse as Queens, it still combines a lot of different ethnic groups; it carefully preserves their identities and influences. For example every path, node, edge in DUMBO historical district of Brooklyn reminds cultural values of the area and people who lived there.
