Harlem's denser than that area of Brooklyn, so there's more people (maybe 1.5-2x ?) in the Harlem zips. Harlem has more project to drag the numbers down.

Yeah, and I meant working-class not in just in terms of income, but also professional/socioeconomic background. You may have a NYC Department of Sanitation supervisor and a 911 dispatcher living together in Flatbush earning $150,000 collectively. Then you may have a 28-year old Syracuse grad earning $85,000 a year and living in Fort Greene. One is middle class while the other is probably upper middle class despite earning less.

There's more people in Harlem, but that's part of what makes it a slightly better draw than Brooklyn. Downtown and Fort Greene are close to the Financial District so a lot of Wall Street workers live in the neighborhood, but I'd say slightly more opt for Harlem. The history and the fact it's in Manhattan will always make it a slightly more appealing place for professional Blacks, imo. Harlem is still the epicenter of professional Black life in NYC even though Brooklyn more than holds its own.

Yes, I agree that social proclivities play a part in defining class.

I live in the twin cities and I'm currently visiting Chicago(my hometown). It brought so much jooy seeing so many brothers and sisters on their way to their downtown office jobs. It was truly a beautiful sight.
