This historical reference is about the Rosedale neighborhood of Queens from 1976, as the neighborhood becomes more integrated:

Ironically, here are the demographics for the zip code that covers Rosedale: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/86000US11422-11422/ (the percentage is non Hispanic)

Its black median household income is $90,386(the highest of any group in the neighborhood): https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...ST5Y2019.S1903

It is 84.1% black(85.9% inc. those in combo): https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...SDP5Y2019.DP05

Map of the neighborhood: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ro...!4d-73.7389596

To be fair to South Jamaica, this is a zip code that covers this neighborhood: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/86000US11434-11434/
and another one: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/86000US11436-11436/
Map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/So...!4d-73.7919103

Also, this is the zip code that covers Laurelton, another predominantly black, middle class neighborhood: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/86000US11413-11413/
Map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/La...!4d-73.7447853

Some of the adjacent areas of Nassau County also have changed and are still middle class: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/86000US11580-11580/
Black median household income is $116,059: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...ST5Y2019.S1903
Other demographics: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...SDP5Y2019.DP05

Black median household income $121,572(highest of any group): https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...ST5Y2019.S1903
Other demographics: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...SDP5Y2019.DP05

Black median household income $135,692: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...ST5Y2019.S1903
Other demographics: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table...SDP5Y2019.DP05

Elmont and North Valley Stream are a couple of predominantly or pluralistically more black and middle class communities.

Elmont: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/profi...00000US3624273

North Valley Stream: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/profi...00000US3653748
