I figured this would probably be the best place to post this. Hopefully good news for a building in desperate need of renovations, and is on the New York State list of Historical Buildings in need of repair (from the Ithaca Times):

Nice find and thank you for posting this! I didn't even know that this site was around or even given a historic designation.


For those that may have trouble viewing the article: Site of First Black Frat Catches State's Eye - Ithaca Times : News


Another sports reference: O'Hara Beats Sacred Heart 77-46 | WGRZ.com
(Cardinal O'Hara is a coed Catholic HS in just outside of the city of Tonawanda, within the town of Tonawanda)

No sweat, man. I'm just glad that someone else was interested in posting meaningful information for the thread, as I think it is/can be very educational and informative for many people.

Just to post updated information like another NY thread that is similar, here is new information for census block groups that are predominately or pluralistically more Black and have a median household income that would or may be viewed as being within the "middle class"(which according to the Pew Research Center is anywhere from 2/3rds to double the median household income, but will increase the low end percentage for this thread). Median household incomes for most Upstate NY areas are around the national median household income of $53,482(10-14 census info), with the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area having a median household income of $61,841(10-14 census info), being the exception.


Census Block Group 003602-2 in the SW corner of the Salt Springs neighborhood of Syracuse near Le Moyne College has a median household income of $63,229(10-14 info) and is 56.1% Black(2010 info).


Census Block Group 004300-4 in the eastern portion of the Kensington Heights neighborhood of Buffalo has a median household income of $54,643 and is 55.7% Black(2010 info).

Census Block Group 010202-2 in the western end of the Cleveland Hill neighborhood/community in the town of Cheektowaga(Cleveland Hill Schools) has a median household income of $69,514 and is 47.6% Black(highest percentage in block group). It is next to the previously mentioned census block.

Census Block Group 005400-5 just above the previous block group in NE Rochester just south of Bausch and Lomb has a median household income of %50,750 and is 43.2% Black(highest percentage in block group).


Census Block Group 004602-1 an outer northern/NW neighborhood near the southern end of Seneca Park has a median household income of $41,500 and is 54.6% Black.


Census Block Group 008100-3 is an outer northern neighborhood in Rochester just south of this area: http://www.orgsites.com/ny/lefrois/index.html

Some others possibly could have been added, but when vetting, I couldn't post them or may have missed some. I'll try to add more later and perhaps do it based upon a percentage range.

Thanks again Ex-Ithacan!


Here are some more census block groups that may be viewed as being or have quite residents within the range of "middle class"(lower to upper) and that are at least 20% to just under 50% Black, with updated census information. Before I post some information, this is the article where I got the information about the range going from 67%-200% of the median household income: What 'middle class' means in every US state - Business Insider


Here is another article that mentions the same thing under the calculators: Are you in the US middle class? Try our income calculator | Pew Research Center


Census Block Group 010201-3 in the Cleveland Hill area of Cheektowaga(Cleveland Hill Schools) has a median household income of $63,750(10-14 census info) and is 46.3% Black(2010 info)


Census Block Group 010201-2 also in Cleveland Hill adjacent to the previous block group, has a median household income of $67,600 and is 21.5% Black.


Census Block Group 010202-3 again in Cleveland Hill has a median household income of $45,313 and is 36.9% Black.


Census Block Group 010500-3 in the Pine Hill area of Cheektowaga has a median household income of $40,278 and is 30.5% Black.


Census Block Group 010500-2 also in the Pine Hill area of Cheektowaga has a median household income of $46,827 and is 22.5% Black.


Census Block Group 009301-4 in the far SW corner of Eggertsville in the town of Amherst(Amherst Central Schools) has a median household income of $70,458 and is 22.7% Black.


Census Block Group 004500-1 in North Buffalo(may say Starin Central on maps) has a median household income of $61,462 and is 24.1% Black.
