Here is the demographic and graduation info for Malverne HS: https://data.nysed.gov/gradrate.php?...d=800000049537

https://data.nysed.gov/profile.php?instid=800000049537

Malverne High is the high school that Lakeview is zoned for. Lakeview(CDP) is NY State's Blackest municipality/CDP at 81%(2010 info) and has a median household income of about $117,000(2010-2014 info). So, NY State's Blackest municipality/CDP is zoned for a high school that had a 93% graduation rate in 2015.

I dare say that Lakeview may be the most affluent predominately Black municipality/CDP in the country outside of the handful of communities in Prince George's County MD in the Washington DC metro area.

There is an area of Queens that is middle class African American (Only one in the city). I think it's called Cambria Heights. Right along the Nassau border. Stay the hell away from Jamaica/Far Rockaway though. There are many more middle income Black areas down south then in NY state.
Hehe Nice joke.Here is an area of Queens that is middle class african American.

It's not an "African-American community" exactly, but neighborhoods in Amherst (suburb of Buffalo) that are east of Grover Cleveland/Millersport Drive are generally well-off, and the most diverse in Western New York. It's not one of those "old Buffalo" areas that are dominated by one or two ethnic groups -- there's the usual Polish/Italian/Irish/German, but also a large Jewish community, and a growing Indian, Chinse, Russian, and black presence. An AA megachurch (Zion Dominion) lies smack in the middle of 14221, around the corner from a large synagogue.

The image of Amherst as some monolithic expanse of WASP households, still a trope among Buffalo's urbanist hipsters and homers, is about as dated as the playlist on 97 Rock. While it's not a substitute for the likes of Southfield, Matteson, Baldwin Hills, or the long-integrated Heights/Hillcrest suburbs of Cleveland, for upstate New York it's about as close as you'll find.

Yes and there are other examples in the Upstate NY Black/African American communities thread. Parts of the Kensington Heights neighborhood in Buffalo and into parts of Cleveland Hill in the town of Cheektowaga is an area of mostly(predominate and pluralistically) and highly Black neighborhoods that are middle class in the Buffalo area. Parts of Buffalo near UB's South Campus and west of Main Street seems to have mixed neighborhoods with at least a decent percentage of Black residents and that are middle class as well. Parts of Eggertsville and the Sweet Home SD in Amherst are like this as well. Perhaps parts of the Cheektowaga Central SD too.

I believe a portion of the Hamlin Park neighborhood is still middle class and is a mostly Black neighborhood just east of Main near Canisius College(for those not familiar with the neighborhood).

Other Upstate NY areas have similar areas like what you mentioned(the bulk of Syracuse's East Side into DeWitt(J-D Schools)/parts of Clay; parts of SE Rochester into Brighton as well as parts of Irondequoit/Henrietta/Chili/Greece and Gates; SW Albany as well as parts of Colonie/SE Schenectady/E and SE Troy/Menands/Guilderland near Albany; maybe parts of Vestal/Binghamton's West Side/Johnson City; etc.

Yup and what is interesting is that the 2 census block groups to the east and SE have a median household income between $90-100k. So, even Roosevelt appears to have a chunk that is solidly middle class.

There is an area(census block group) of Uniondale on the other side of the highway that is 59% Black and has a median HH income of a little over $97,000 as well.
