Once in Enclaves, Now in Settlements

News item:

Daniel Thompson Dies; Mechanized BagelsBy MARGALIT FOX
Before Mr. Thompson’s invention, which automated the bagel-making process, consumption of the now-staple food was largely limited to Jewish enclaves in major cities. He was 94.

We and our enclaves. Lucky we weren't then in 'settlements'.

We used to be in 'Jewish neighborhoods'.  What happened to those?


On the way home from the Bronx after visiting my grandparents on Saturday nights late, we'd stop off at a bagel bakery under the Tremont Ave. El, I think.  It was in the 1950s.
