Question: Which Brooklyn Neighborhoods Were Possibly Under Counted by 2010 US Census?
The 2010 Census data on Brooklyn is being disputed as being too low. Which Brooklyn neighborhoods might have been undercounted?
Answer: Brooklyn neighborhoods cited by Mayor Bloomberg and the Brooklyn Borough President as having been possibly undercounted in the 2010 census include:
  1. Bensonhurst
  2. Downtown Brooklyn
  3. Crown Heights
  4. DUMBO
  5. Greenpoint
  6. Sunset Park
  7. Williamsburg

Note: The above may not be the only neighborhoods in Brooklyn that were undercounted in the 2010 census.

Mayor Bloomberg and Borough President Markowitz dispute the 2010 census demographic portrait of NYC, and say it has missed residents in some Brooklyn neighborhoods.
