I think so in some towns, as there is some agricultural areas in both counties. There are more Puerto Ricans in both counties though and some live in small towns as well.

Kingston in Ulster County is about 16% Black and 15% Hispanic. Ellenville, a village in Ulster County is about 13% Black and 27% Hispanic.

In Dutchess County, Wappingers Falls is about 11% Black and 27% Hispanic. Arlington(CDP) is about 24% Black and 13% Hispanic(about 12% Asian too).

You also have some other smaller communities with decent-above average Hispanic percentages as well. So, some smaller places in both counties would fit much demographic criteria of the thread.

Dutchess: 2.6% Mexican, 4.0% Puerto Rican
Ulster: 1.6% Mexican, 4.4% Puerto Rican


IMO, nothing about those numbers are a surprise.

Thats most people's perception of the rest of Florida if they never leave Miami.

Even in the South, there are rural areas that are homogeneous or are overwhelmingly of one group.


As a specific area in regards to the thread, this area of Syracuse fits for sure: Northside UP - The Northside Urban Partnership | Syracuse, NY It is where you can find refugees from SE and South Asia, East and West Africa and the Middle East, some old/die hard Italians, Germans, Irish, along with African Americans and Hispanics. There are tracts where there isn't a predominant group on this side of town and you can find a range of places of worship, as well as some restaurants/markets(Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian, etc.). This neighborhood has also seen some gentrification from some in the local LGBTQ community: Hawley-Green Neighbors

It also has a range of neighborhoods from lower income to upper middle class.
Buffalo’s Lower Westside is similar: https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2...wer-west-side/

By now it's probably common knowledge, but I certainly recall a time where many people seemed to be surprised by the number of black and international residents there are in Texas. Even today I'm sure many just don't make the connection between TX and black America. For example, when people talk about the history of blues music, TX rarely gets mentioned, even though the genre (along with ragtime) practically originated here.

But in popular culture, this state has always been the land of white cowboys and Mexicans; which does make sense as Anglos and Hispanics are still the largest groups by a wide margin.

Yeah it’s amazing how people did not know the size of Texas black population or its rich history. My coworker from Maryland thought Texas black population size was very low. Did not even have a million under his belief. I showed him the stats on two different sites and he was shocked. Same conversation years ago in Florida when I went to high school one year down there. They thought there were barely any black people in Texas.

What? Houston and Dallas are very much associated with black people. A lot of famous hip hop came out of Houston.

It's Interesting that you say this because for some reason Tennessee and Kentucky seems to face this same stigma as Texas, but on a larger scale when it comes to this in spite It's largest Cities have Massive numbers of Blacks. Louisville and Lexington run high numbers when it comes to blacks and other races in Kentucky and in Tennessee all of it's largest Cities, especially Nashville and Metro Memphis, the king of the Black Population. Nashville city is very diverse and highly intergrated with large numbers of Blacks and a International Population while Memphis a city of over 600,000 is Majority Black and it's the only Metro area in the United States over a Million that has a Majority Black population but for some reason when it comes down to it, Tennessee has a hard time being looked at as having Black people or even having an International population when that could be further from the truth.. It's kinda interesting to me

I understand, but some may be surprised to find smaller places like those mentioned that are in the Northeast to have substantial percentages of both groups.

With that said, for parts of other regions, they may be more commonplace.

In terms of an area of a major city, SW Detroit may surprise people with its big Mexican population and it is probably the most diverse part of the city. 48209, a zip code in that part of town is about 2/3 Mexican. 48210 just to the north is about 1/3 Mexican. 48216 nearby is about 23% Mexican.

Kansas has some towns that are pretty heavily Vietnamese because of refugee resettlement or something.
