Most of the white folks you see in NYC do not live here, just a small % actually lives here.

The amount of white folks in Manhattan and BK does not compare to the amount of legal and illegal Latinos living around as well as the new explosion of Asians mainly Chinese and Indians moving over here.

Ask around most white folks working in the city lives in NJ, CT, or Long Island. Any middle class white guy knows better than not to live in NYC and get half of their income to pay for the welfare recipients of this city.
Oh good grief the whites in NYC are second or third generation Americans who are in no position to call recent arrivals immigrants. As for gentrification, whites have always moved to NYC to make it, so a lot of successful older white people have always been from other states For the Latinos, Asians, and Blacks, many of them are very recent immigrants. There a very few if any Black families who have been living in NYC since the 1800s, and most African Americans have left. The Black population here is mainly either immigrant or just first or second generation American.

And NYC is not a Latino or a Chinese majority city. Whites are the biggest group in Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Manhattan. 3 out of 5 boroughs. Western Queens is getting whiter.

You clearly haven't been to Queens, or likely any of the outer boroughs for that matter.

Hilarious. The super-rich in Manhattan subsidize everyone, you poor lost soul. Who do you think runs the employment centers in the Tri-State area? Manhattanites of course - CEO of JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, etc all live in Manhattan, not CT/LI/NJ. Truly wealthy people want to live in the center of prestige, glamour and culture - Manhattan. Those suburbs are for middle-managers who truly can't afford to live that coveted Manhattan lifestyle with a family. Point is -- the amount of super-rich people in Manhattan exceeds anywhere in the world.

Million Dollar Earners, IRS
Manhattan: 16,466
Long Island: 7,540
State of Connecticut: 9,030

Million dollar incomes rise in N.Y.

According to IRS data, Manhattan has more million dollar filers than every entire state in the country besides California and Texas. And Manhattan only has 1.5mm people and Texas and California have 26,000,000 and 33,000,000, respectively. And Texas only has a few hundred more $1MM+ filers than Manhattan. And thousands fewer than the combined sum of the boroughs of New York City.

And these are the people who file their taxes in Manhattan -- the highest taxed place in the country. Who knows what the true number looks like when you include the tax dodgers who stay in the city and claim residency somewhere else to minimize taxes. The amount of wealth in the Big Apple is astonishing.

Billionaires
Manhattan: 103
Long Island: 4
State of Connecticut: 12

Hell, rich New Yorkers subsidize the nation.

It is the world's financial capital, after all.

I know city-data forum tends to attract the bitter, worn out and envious people who like to take their failures out this island dripping with money for not welcoming them with a red carpet but this island is and will always be the global center of capitalism, wrapped in bow of iconic landmarks, glamorous parties and superb restaurants. Sorry you couldn't play! Try somewhere unimportant in the middle of the country like Cleveland or Nashville lol.

And also, New York City certainly doesn't need the revenue from the "middle class white people" (I guess your keywords for xenophobic whites, as whites are actually the biggest racial block in NYC) since it already has the wealthiest industry in the world.

New York City
White 44.6%
Hispanic 27.5%
Black 25.1%
Asian 11.8%
American Indian 0.4%
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 0.1%
Other races 16%

A perfectly diverse city.

It's amazing how unproductive and so lacking of wealth middle-america, "middle-class white" cities in the U.S. are. New York and the San Francisco Bay Area have the largest foreign born population in the country and they happen to have the most riches by far.

So go on, go go go to Long Island or to wherever it is, xenophobes. The rest of us whites who aren't afraid of other people will keep happily living in New York City (hell, any city in the world that matters as all top cities are diverse) and continuing the tradition of making it the most important city in the world.

Maybe you should try Kansas City lol.

Yes, NYC doesn't need that many "middle class whites". But the same can be said of middle class/poor Blacks and Hispanics. They are expendable as neighborhoods gentrify and these neighborhoods get less racially diverse.

NYC is rough. That's why the saying has always been if you can make it in NYC, you can make it anywhere.
