There are 3 other Caribbean restaurants in Syracuse, btw(Jerk Hut, the Jamerican Diner and Jamaica Lick Finger).
Just an update, the last restaurant location has moved to Nedrow, a suburb just south of Syracuse near Green Hills Farms grocery store. I found out that they made the move a couple of months ago.

Also, this young man from Rochester is one of the top HS Basketball players for his class in the country: https://www.democratandchronicle.com...cks/658530002/ (if he stayed at McQuaid Jesuit, a team that made the public school state Final 4 in Class AA(the state’s biggest class), they would have had a great shot to win a State title)

Given that he died in 1899, this illustrates that these Upstate and Long Island communities have long time Black populations/communities.
Also, in terms of the historical reference(from 1917, if I’m not mistaken), it mentions that places such as Olean, Oswego, Elmira, Kingston, Warwick and Catskill as having churches.

From the same source, it shows this reference of this man born in Utica in 1871: https://books.google.com/books?id=mL...Thomas&f=false (click on first choice)

His father (likely) served at this church: https://www.churchesnearus.com/worsh...hurch-utica-ny

So, this illustrates that even more Upstate cities have long time Black communities/populations. Richfield Springs was also mentioned in that source.

On a side note, other places on Long Island were Westbury, Huntington Station and Bay Shore.

Also, Elmhurst and Jamaica in Queens and Tompkinsville on Staten Island are also in this source.

So, this also illustrates there were places Downstate/within present day NYC with long time Black communities as well.
