Staten Island’s changing immigrant profile

Staten Island’s changing immigrant profile

Many people think of Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of New York City, as being mostly white and mostly native-born — but the fact is that, in 2010, more than 20% of the population of Staten Island was foreign-born. That was just one of the surprising details presented on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 by Joseph Salvo, director of the Population Division for NYC Planning, when he addressed Wagner College’s Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform on the topic of “Staten Island and the Changing Immigrant Profile of New York City.” (60 min.)
