For instance, here are lists that has some census block groups with relatively recent info(yes, the data likely needs to be updated) that fit or come close: Upper Middle class african-american communities in ny

In Chicagoland, mostly the south suburbs: Flossmoor, Homewood, Richton Park, University Park, etc. Many of these places are still seeing overall declines because of the white folks flooding out, though.

Just because an area has relatively high black median incomes, doesn’t mean black people with money are moving there. PG is a great example. Black people with money are moving to Montgomery county, whereas people being gentrified out of DC are moving to PG.

True.

When it comes to true money, Montgomery County is on a whole different level. Not to say PG County doesn't have people with money, I just wouldn't compare it with Montgomery County.

Or they could be moving to select PG County communities outside of the Beltway too.

Some are moving to Charles County as well. A little old, but interesting to see: http://www.usa.com/rank/maryland-sta...lst=MD&yr=9000

Elmont, NY located in Nassau county that boarders the successful black communities in southeast Queens
Wheatley Heights, NY located in Nassau County

Elmont, Uniondale, Hillcrest are over 50% Black.
The black make up of Wheatley Heights is 48% black which makes blacks the largest group in the area.

As far as the NJ portion of the NYC metro, Alpines, NJ is a rich area in NJ that is known to attract wealthy African american celebrities. I wouldn’t call it a suburb that attracted “many” African Americans though.
Let me just say I think these threads are dumb.

When it comes to Nassau, Uniondale and Elmont are by no means "affluent" or even nice really, especially Uniondale. Pretty rough area (borders Hempstead and Roosevelt, two bad areas) and Elmont is pretty "eh" as well....

To answer the question though, Englewood NJ for NYC, and cities like Dallas, DC, Houston and ATL have many suburbs that have decent black populations.

Not entirely true. I know a fair amount of people who make good income on their own, but have moved from either another county in this region or out of state to Prince George's due to the COL being slightly better than its surrounding neighbors.

Also median home values in PG County have the highest percentage increase in the DC area the past couple of years.

And anybody who knows the area well, knows that Charles county is taking more gentrified DC residents now than PG.

Elmont actually has a higher median household income than Englewood(which still has middle class areas) and actually has “better”/solid/good schools: https://www.sewanhakaschools.org/elm . Those other Nassau County places actually have middle class areas within them, as mentioned in a thread I posted earlier in this thread.

speaking about rough idk how rough or safe many of these areas being mentioned in many of these communities across the country are. Most of the areas being mentioned are being judged by their income status!
