thats the thing about new york city , even the poor areas of our city has fashion sense. nyc as a whole has fashion sense all over especially the young crowd.
Like I said you're not gonna see WORLD CLASS models walking in Brownsville Brooklyn. The same way you can find young fashionable people in Brownsville, you can find the same in Liberty City and Little Haiti, just not the BEST dressed in the each one of these cities are not gonna be in these sections.

I agree, growing up in the tri-state area, you would get joked for wearing bummy clothing, even the kids in the projects get fresh.

Although I would also argue any one of these:
Northeast: West Point
South: Annapolis (if you don't consider this south than The Citadel)
Midwest: Naval Station Great Lakes
West: Air Force Academy
random?

Midwest: Im biased lol Detroit. (We dress similar to Chicago but I noticed a lot of blk men on the northside tend to wear the the skinny jean mohawk look its just not my thing other than that they dress fine. I like midwesterns style most anyway)
Westcoast: no answer
Yeah detroit and chicago are similar if were talking about urban gear. There's alot of differnet styles in chicago most black and hispanic kids dress the same unless were talking about the latino gang members who shave their heads and leave a hair at the end. smh.

Lmao yeah, New York will change the way you dress especially if your a kid moving from some other state or something into the city. Another thing, Florida in general seems to have grown accustomed to the whole dread style, it really doesn't make sense to me. I guess maybe because of the islander culture?

nyc has islander culture to , but the way the peopel wear locks in florida is very messy and they love rocking the huge locks with sloppiness.

i find it funny you would say the islander culture because in maimi african americans have always had a history of hating on haitians. same with jamaicans but to a lesser extent since jamaicans could speak some sort of english.

Oh yeah I know about New York and islander culture, all you have to do is take a ride down Flatbush Avenue lol. It's funny because my grandmother was born and raised on Flatbush Ave in the 40's and 50's and she remembers it being totally different, mainly just black, white, and asian kids. Islanders have definitely made their presence felt over the years, and I know what you mean about Miami, the dreadlocks are very sloppy idk how these guys don't die from sweat in the summertime.

When I lived in Florida, Haitians would call the African-Americans Yakns(short for Yankees, or Americans). They used to bully Haitians, until Zoe Pound and other gangs got big. Interesting history of South Florida.
