It could be due to being mobile......It seems like Flatlands is a hidden gem in Brooklyn and parts of it has median household incomes above the metro figure. Here is some info: http://www.city-data.com/forum/44866852-post126.html

East Flatbush and Canarsie are the upper end of the working-class. Sort of similar to Clinton, MD only Jamaican and Haitian.

Compare to a map of white education, which need a different scale
Harlem is still where most younger Black professionals go.

Harlem - 19,960 (25.0%)
Fort Greene/CH/W. Bed Stuy - 16,905 (28.6%)

In all fairness, "Harlem" is like seven neighborhoods, and has, much larger geographical footprint. I'd say that educated black professionals are more clustered in Brooklyn, as evidenced by the higher percentage.

Yeah, with maybe some areas that are lower to straight middle class. Pew Research states that 2/3rds to double a median household income is viewed as being within the range of middle class. Out of major metro areas, I believe that DC has the highest median household income at around $92,000 or so. So, that may serve as a frame of reference.

Correction, behind only Los Alamos NM, the San Jose metro has a median household income of $92,960, which is second out of all metro/micro areas. Los Alamos has a MHHI of $105,989. DC's MHHI is $91,756 and all of this is according to 2010-2014 census info. NYC's metro MHHI is $66,902, which is 28th out of 868 areas.

Those areas look on-par education-wise with white areas of southern Brooklyn or Staten Island, which might also be called "upper end of the working-class" or maybe lower-middle-class. Clinton, MD might be similar education-wise but it's richer; median income is $101,501. Part of the difference is it's almost owned houses, pricing out the poor or anyone younger.

Can you see my maps?

Actually, it's a smaller footprint. The Harlem zip codes added up to 3.53 sq. miles. The Brooklyn zips were 3.58 sq. miles. The difference in the percentage of educated Blacks is negligible.

Yeah. Clinton doesn't have project buildings.
