The map text from the Times:

Canarsie, Brooklyn, had one of the greatest increases in its share of black residents in 2009 (to 81% from 67%), while recently gentrified neighborhoods like Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill and Fort Greene saw double-digit decreases.

There is also an accompanying article Region Is Reshaped as Minorities Go to Suburbs:
