Article listed on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion Apr 29 to May 6 2004, consensus was to keep. Discussion:

Not particularily notable, unless we want articles on the houses of famous people as well. Falcon 01:24, Apr 29, 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep, certainly. Seems plenty notable to me. Everyking 02:10, 29 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. NYC neighborhoods are just as encyclopedic as small Midwestern towns. -Sean 03:39, 29 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Why is this a candidate for speedy deletion? We have an article about every street in London. Why not do one about a neighborhood in NYC?
    • Why would it be? It isn't. Falcon 20:19, Apr 29, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Interesting and noteable.--Samuel J. Howard 12:52, 29 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, in accord with the reasons cited above; and we have a burgeoning list of Queens neighborhoods (including the one I live in, I might add). Alcarillo 20:01, 29 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. -- Decumanus | Talk 04:19, 30 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. There are numerous articles for small towns. Why not for neighborhoods in cities? MK 03:57, 4 May 2004 (UTC)

No evidence or source supporting that this is a way station for Jewish Americans.[edit]

Once primarily a way station for Jewish families on their way to the suburbs, Briarwood is today a very diverse community, with lead fractions of the population being African-Americans (36.6%) and European-Americans (30.2%). It has many Bukharian Jewish, Greek, Hispanic, African American, Albanian, and South American residents. It now has a distinguishable and fast-growing Asian American (14.4%) community as well.[2]

What source or evidence is there supporting this is a way station. I'm not disputing that this is residential nor arguably even suburban. However, this statement leaves the assumption that Jews had come from a place that's not specified? And that they were to a suburb that's unspecified? And why them exclusively. I'll be taking out the first line. Tom173.72.121.29 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:28, 20 August 2009 (UTC).
