Contrary to borough-wide trends, Sheepshead Bay saw a 5% drop in prices of single family homes between 2005 and 2006. Lending activity is low in CD 215; it ranks in the bottom five districts city-wide. A larger percentage of school children perform at or above grade level than the borough average in reading, and the CD is on par with the borough average on math. CD 215 saw a sizeable increase in the foreign born population throughout the 90s, growing from 26% to 45%, but the rate has leveled off in recent years. The area is fairly diverse in terms of income but ranks near the bottom of all CDs in racial diversity
