Historically, many Irish families settled into homes along these streets creating an ethnic enclave that lasted for many decades until the late 1980s when dwindling factory jobs forced people to move away from their neighborhoods due to economic necessity. Today’s population in this part of town includes African Americans and Hispanics who immigrated after 1965 as well as other groups reflecting changes in immigration patterns.
