Here are a couple of entrepreneur lists that mention the Buffalo, Rochester, Albany and Ithaca metros: https://www.goodcall.com/data-center...entrepreneurs/ (Ithaca is 27th and Albany is 63rd on this list)


https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/smal...ed-businesses/ (Buffalo has the highest percentage of Black owned businesses with paid employees in the country and Black owned businesses in the Rochester area have an average annual revenue of $114,153. Only 13 of the 107 metros on the list have a higher average annual revenue)

ckthankgod, I might have asked you this already but I'm curious about something

Binghamton's black population per the most recent census is something like 12%, but I spent a lot of time in Binghamton as I went to school at Binghamton University before I flunked out, and the city of Binghamton seemed way blacker than that. Between 1/3 and 1/2 of the people I saw were black. Johnson City also seemed to have a lot more black people than the census info would suggest. Could it be that my perception is skewed by the parts of Binghamton I was in, or has the black population increased since 2010?

The area also had the highest percentage of black/white interracial relationships I've ever seen.

I believe it is a combination of where you were in the city/area and growth of that population. Besides Binghamton and Johnson City, Endicott has its share and you find a couple/few in terms of percentage in suburbs like Vestal, Endwell, Owego and even the Susquehanna Valley, Chenango Valley and Chenango Forks school districts. So, it isn't just the city of Binghamton, but the other cities(really villages) and some of the suburbs/small towns as well.

Also, it isn't uncommon to see black/white(or other types of) interracial couples in Upstate NY, in general. I think it is more visible in the smaller areas due to things like many smaller cities having just 1 high school. Elmira and Auburn are a couple of other small cities in Upstate that come to mind in terms of seeing black/white interracial couples.

Geneva, which also has quite a few Hispanic and Black residents, also comes to mind. I believe its school district enrollment is now about 50-50 white/non white and has actually improved academically due to the Geneva 2020 initiative.

So, interracial couples and diverse smaller cities aren't uncommon up here either.

Here is some video information from the Binghamton City SD that may illustrate what you saw during your time there: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCV9ksL9HmxtVsVTjMKFibRg
