You can draw from that what you will. Different stores have a level of snobbery/uptight feel though... Agata & Valentina comes to mind on 79th and 1st over in Yorkville/UES.
I never really got a tight ass vibe in Agata and Valentina stores, probably not that location tho, just overpriced. My friend picked up chips there once and it was 4 bucks. It’s near some colleges like hunter. Just a scammy bodega.

No, because the type of neighborhoods I like (very dense/urban) all have the same political leaning.

Statistically the place listed on your profile is heavily Bangladeshi. South Asians vote mixed Democrat and Republican in my experience, like Latinos, Africans, Chinese and Russians.

Republicans are mostly against illegal, not legal, immigration (I'm not Republican, just giving their perspective). Many Republicans organize on Chinese and Russian language social media in fact. Illegal immigration, in their perspective gives legal immigrants a bad name. Conservatives are not anti Islam either, ISIS is NOT related to Bangladesh or India but to bad eggs in Iraq and Syria.

Yeah, in the Bronx anyway the more conservative neighborhoods are on the outskirts - I guess former white flight destinations. I'd think that the south shore of Staten Island has a lot in common with these areas.

Is there actual data that suggest that white people in the Bronx are more conservative than Latinos, Asians and Africans from Africa or is it just broken down by "white" and "minority"? I understand many black Americans traditionally vote Democratic but that's not the case for other minorities.

I'm talking about neighborhoods rather than race per say. Riverdale is probably a lot more liberal than Country Club for instance although both are majority white.

Why would Riverdale have a lot of liberals. I thought that place would be Republican central because it's stereotyped as so rich. It's also more homogeneous I think. Country Club is more racially mixed because it's linked to Co Op City. I deadass never heard this before.

More income doesn't necessarily = more conservative. For instance the wealthiest areas of Manhattan are overall liberal politically.

I think that in my area (10460/ 10472) people are simply not voting. There are a lot of FOBs in the mid-Bronx area who may not have US citizenship. The ones that are voting are probably SJW gentrifiers so having 2 voters in an area probably pushes up the Democrat number unnaturally.

Funny how in the 90s, liberals are considered to be queers and outcasts. Today, liberals are mainstreamed. They all look alike and predictable. Most liberals today are very narrow minded and can't think outside the box. I was a liberal in the 90s but I am independent thinker now. Most people I can relate with are conservatives and they are not easy to spot. Especially in NYC, I've met black women, gays, and all ethnics that are conservatives and not the typical right wingers.
