On Bell Boulevard, there are signs that the demographics in Bayside are changing. Whites still account for the majority of the residents, but census numbers show that the Asian population has tripled in the last two decades.
In 1990, the number of Asians living here was a little more than 5,000. Today, it's around 15,000, according to census estimates.
There are 10,000 Chinese and Korean residents here, and while their population is on the rise, the number of white residents are declining, according to Census estimates from 2008 to 2012. There were 30,000 white residents in 1990. Today, 21,000 live here. Many are not only leaving the neighborhood, but the city as well.
"Cause it's so expensive," said one resident. "It's crazy here. My day will come."
So what's the draw for many Asians? Most say it's the neighborhood's high-performing school district and the after-school programs in the area.
The other part is the beautiful homes and quiet tree-lined streets.
