I thought you lived in Queens? Jamaica has a zip that's 27, don't see anything nearby in Queens lower. Lowest I found on Long Island is 8 for a zip code in New Hyde Park. Claims the median household income is $0, citydata lists a median household income of $113k/year and a median age of 83(!)

Sorry but I'm not following the logic here.

I left Queens a while ago.

That was definitely an error, New Hyde Park is a nice area. But some of the differences between adjacent neighborhoods/towns are striking, Far Rockaway and neighboring Lawrence are like night and day, and it shows. On the Upper East Side of Manhattan there's a drop from 99 to 29 as one heads into East Harlem. It's depressing in a way.

I lived for a short time in Loudon Country, the wealthiest county, in terms of income, in all the land. There is nothing special about it.

I guess if they buy/invest in a home that ends up having a lot less appreciation?
