No we can disagree with facts not you making up stuff.. You talk like a tourist who came to NYC and stayed in Harlem and think you understand the city.

NYC is not DC. We don’t sit on one piece of land. While there are black areas in NYC being gentrified there are also many that aren’t since middle class blacks tend to live in the deepest parts of the city where there is a lack of transportation!

NYC also is a city that a lot of young black professionals (many from the south) still comes to.

One of the deputies for NYC DOT Brooklyn division is actually a black dude from Atlanta! Go Figure!

Actually I made a mistake. DC doesnít sit on one piece of land either I think but I think the point I was making is that DC is so tiny and is probably the best example of a black neighborhoods being gentrified beyond recognition and I think Miamiís black communities are next!

Yeah, while the information needs to be updated a little bit, it still can offer insight as to places in the NYC metro area where the Black middle class is located: Upper Middle class african-american communities in ny

Keep in mind that the thread only includes the NY State portion of the area and doesnít include places in the NJ portion like Teaneck, Piscataway, Maplewood, South Orange, parts of Englewood, etc.

Kodeblue these are post you need to be looking at when it comes to Blacks in NYC. This ain’t the 1940s no more. Black been had much more territory than Harlem in the NYC metro. Lol

Why do New Yorkers create a false narrative that if you say something about NYC that they don't like, they assume that you hit up a bunch of tourist spots and suddenly thinking you know the city? I see that here, and on the forum (you know where I'm talking about) quite often.

I get what you're saying, but I still would not put NYC on the same tier as DC or Atlanta.

Harlem was a Black mecca, but has been slowly dissolving in the last 2 decades, Right now Harlem is going trough rapid gentrification and population replacement. The current black mecca is Atlanta. IMHO. The graph below is kinda old, black population in central Harlem could fall bellow 50% this year or next. Its currently below 30% in west Harlem already. Same for Crown Heights and other Central Brooklyn Neighborhoods.
