Default Progressive towns

Ithaca is a very comfortable town if you are non-white. People here are open minded and very liberal. I will miss Ithaca tremendously when I move away But Syracuse is a great town for POC because of the history of its support for the underground railroad (Struggles: The Story of the Underground Railroad in Syracuse « Onondaga Historical Association Museum & Research Center Making History).

True, Queens, which is also the most "diverse" county in the United States, has quite a few middle to affluet Black neighborhoods and individuals. Also, considering that NY state has more Black people than any other state(around 3.5 million), it shouldn't be hard to find such persons in towns across the state.

That's another one, but for some odd reason, there is a bad rep towards the schools and the community by the rest of Rockland Co. I wonder why that is?

They seem to be about the same. Here's information on both:https://www.nystart.gov/publicweb/District.do?year=2007&county=WESTCHESTER&district= 660402020000 (broken link)

https://www.nystart.gov/publicweb/District.do?year=2007&county=WESTCHESTER&district= 660405030000 (broken link)

Ardsley Union Free School District (http://www.ardsleyschools.k12.ny.us/ - broken link)

https://www.edline.net/pages/Irvington_UFSD

Dobbs Ferry is another option as well and is similar to those two:https://www.nystart.gov/publicweb/District.do?year=2007&county=WESTCHESTER&district= 660403030000 (broken link)
