DYKER HEIGHTS - According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn is undergoing a major facelift, with many residents of different ethnic backgrounds moving in.

Paul Mak, president of the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association, says many Asians are moving into the residential area long regarded as an Italian-American enclave because Brooklyn's Chinatown is overcrowded.

Realtors say another reason the neighborhood is a hot commodity is because of the schools, which are known for high achievement.
