The Bronx is so Latin American-i don't find it as diverse as Queens.
That's because it's not. Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. It's "Coming to America" through and through.

That's not a problem for me

Okay, but if we're supposed to be comparing each borough on a pound for pound basis, Bronx has the edge. I'm not saying the differences are like night and day but they're significant enough.

Brooklyn is blacker at 30% than the much smaller Bronx at 29%
I was going by the 2018 census estimates found on Wikipedia which has the Bronx at 43.6% Black and Brooklyn and Queens at 40.1% and 20.7% respectively. Either way you call it, Bronx has the highest percentage of POC of the five boroughs.

Brooklyn gives Queens a run for its money in that regard, though.

No doubt, but Queens is still King. Even though Brooklyn is King(s) county that is .

Not surprised by the results of this poll. Queens has something for everyone. Every neighborhood is so different in built form that you can find any level of urbanness from Manhattan-like to suburban. Every neighborhood is unique in urban form. There’s much more variety. Also as many others have said: the diversity of ethnic enclaves, languages, and culinary options is also unmatched.

One thing about The Bronx though is that it’s very distinct and unique. It’s got it’s own style and look that can’t be confused with anywhere else in the world.

I’ve never seen anywhere else that looks like The Bronx, and I doubt any place like it exists, barring nearby portions of Upper Manhattan.

Agreed on both points.

I wouldn't be surprised if Brooklyn is the more integrated of the two, though.

Yep, I was so surprised when I first discovered neighborhoods like Marble Hill and that even a place like Inwood Park exists in Manhattan. I used to think of NYC as just one big flat slab of concrete, but it's really not.

Possible but doubt it. Queens has been the most diverse borough for a long time and has had plenty of time for integration in most neighborhoods. Brooklyn's trendiness over the last 10-15 yrs probably has helped accelerate its integration a bit quicker with gentrification in areas like Bed Stuy, etc but overall I'd still give the edge to Queens on integration as well.
