There goes the old canard that Westchester is largely white and affluent.

Not surprised, as the county has had a number of cities/communities that have been culturally diverse for a while. Some places are also just more diverse and middle class as well.

Yonkers also becoming the 3rd biggest city in the state hasn’t been mentioned on here yet, but it just nipped out Rochester.

So it sounds like Westchester is divided, with whites in the north

There’s variation through most of the county, but in a general sense, I’d say so. You do have places like Bronxville, Rye Brook, Scarsdale and Rye that are high end and mostly white in the southern portion, but even a couple of these places have visible Asian and Hispanic populations(Rye).

In the north places like Peekskill, parts of the nearby Cortlandt Manor area and even in the Bedford/Mt. Kisco area, they have a decent to high amount of other groups.

Then you have an area in the town of Greenburgh like the Parkway Gardens/Parkway Homes area, which is one of the most at least solidly middle class/affluent predominantly black neighborhoods in the country. It has been that way for decades. So, that is an example of at least a solidly middle class/affluence in regards to other groups of people in the county. https://greenburghny.com/DocumentCen...dens-Community
