Fayette County has strict zoning and development rules, and cheap multi-family housing is very limited there.

Within metro Atlanta the southern suburbs tend to be less in the spotlight than the northern suburbs, so many are not aware of the critical mass of affluence in Fayette.

I was actually surprised that some NYC locations made the list to be honest!
I知 not surprised and some are moving to Orange, Dutchess and to a lesser degree Putnam counties further north in NY.

Yep. There are even parts where the Black median household income is higher than the White median household income. And we're talking about median incomes of at least 80K.

Yea North NJ seems to have a hub for well to do black especially when compared to Central NJ.

You値l be my guide for Westchester county because I知 only aware of black communities in Mt. Vernon, Yonkers and Rockland County (I am Haitian-American after all)

Funny you being that up because at one point Black households surpassing white households Existed in Queens.

Here are two old articles speaking about it!

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2006/10/0.../01census.html

https://www.nytimes.com/1994/06/06/n...ld-income.html

But I think the housing crash and gentrification of northern Queens might have had whites slightly back on top!

I can believe it. I know that when a lot of people think about Black neighborhoods in NYC, they tend to think of Harlem, Bed-Stuy, South Bronx, etc. but I believe Queens has been home to the biggest concentration of middle-income Black households in NYC for a while now.

You’ll be my guide for Westchester county because I’m only aware of black communities in Mt. Vernon, Yonkers and Rockland County (I am Haitian-American after all)
The Greenburgh Central SD area, White Plains, New Rochelle, Ossining, Peekskill, Elmsford and to a lesser degree Tuckahoe, Pelham, Manaroneck, Port Chester and some of the other Rivertowns(Dobbs Ferry, Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow, etc.) are other places in Westchester County with at least visible Black populations.

In Orange County; Mechanicstown, Scotchtown, Balmville, Harriman, Orange Lake and Maybrook are some places with Black percentages at least at and above the national Black percentage that have middle class Black median household incomes. Most are either near the main cities of Middletown(21.9% Black) or Newburgh(28.3% Black).

In Dutchess County, Arlington(CDP) outside of Poughkeepsie(37.4% Black), is a small community that is 22% Black and has a middle class Black median household income. Vassar College is partially in that community. Beacon(18.3% Black), is a small city to the south in that county and has been a popular for its Art scene, with some people from NYC of various backgrounds moving there.

Lakeview on Long Island is 74.5%(80.7% including in combination) and has a median household income of $108,438 according to 2016 census information. I believe that out of all NY State cities, villages and census designated places(CDP), it has the highest percentage in the state.

This is the school district that community is in: Malverne Union Free School District
