My immediate area, the Marble Hill projects, like most of the middle-income projects in those days, was mixed ethnically, at least in the early days (before 1970 or so)> As I seem to remember, the most prominent group was Jewish, followed by Irish and Italians, then followed by Black people and Hispanics. This was also reflected in the nearby schools that I went to (PS 7 and JHS 143). As I mentioned, this was almost certainly true in other "middle-income" NYCHA projects of that era, such as Parkside, Pelham Parkway, Dyckman Houses, Sedgwick, etc.
