Heading back westward brings us into the hood known as Ocean Hill. It is everything that is between Broadway, East NY Ave, Ralph Ave, Atlantic Ave, and Malcom X Blvd. This hood is mostly residential. Originally this area wasn't known for much. The Fulton St El allowed for it to be connected with the rest of Brooklyn. The LIRR ran along Atlantic Ave until it was no longer in service. Around the turn of the centruy, Ocean Hill became populated with blacks. However, in later years it began to face problems. The fact that it was neglected lead to residences of Latinos who were looking for homes after WWI when they couldn't afford the rent. Gentrification became a major factor after WWII as the area started to have a population of Jews and Italians. Unlike its neighbors, Ocean Hill was able to survive. Recently, it was given its own neighborhood status from Brownsville, though it still resembles its character. You can get here by taking the subway to Kosciuzko St (J), Gates Ave (J, Z), Halsey St (J), Chauncey St (J, Z), Broadway Junction-Eastern Pkwy (J, L, Z), Broadway-East NY (A, C), Rockaway Ave (C), and Ralph Ave (C). Here is what you will find in Ocean Hill.
