The wealthiest black person I know in NYC lives in __Sheepshead Bay__.
I think I might have mentioned this way earlier in this thread but I'll mention it again now that this silly thread has been revived. One of my doctors(cardiologist) is black and very rich.He is a big poo bah in the international medical world.Has patents on medical devices too.He lives on Beekman Place.

I think there are not many wealthy predominantly black neighborhoods in NYC because those people don't feel the need for it.They want to ( and do) live where all the other very rich people do on 5th Ave,Park Ave,Sutton Place, Beekman Place,Riverside Drive or Central Park West.
Once you get past a certain point on the economic scale the rich thing supersedes the black(or irish,italian or whatever)thing.You go and live with the rich people.

Now that this topic is resurrected, THIS Interactive Map shows the Racial Demographics and Median Household Income of every area in America;
Mapping America ? Census Bureau 2005-9 American Community Survey - NYTimes.com

I was personally surprised about how many neighborhoods there were scattered around the NYC metro area that had High incomes+Black majorities, especially out on Long Island.

(The map also shows poverty rates, educational attainment, foreign-born populations, wealthy-people percentages, same sex couples and much more).

There are spots here and there throughout the city that historically have been known for having upper class black people, but not really whole neighborhoods.

There is one neighborhood either in queens or LI I've heard people mention that is similar to what you described. I can't remember the name though.
I agree but wealthy blacks and latinos in ny live in white neighborhoods around manhatta. NY isn't like DC, 99% black. Ny is more about money and less about race.

you're trying to get the best of both worlds. it is either an integrated wealthy area, or no wealthy area at all, is what they're saying on this board. what is wrong with an integrated wealthy area? doesn't necessarily make you a pioneer in NYC.

It's ghetto in some parts and middle class in others. I personally think Cambria Heights, Laurelton, and Rosedale are much better choices.
