The Torontonians-to-New Yorkers comparison has got me wondering -- who's ethnic minorities are socioeconomically better off -- the diverse parts of the GTA or NYC metro?

If you were someone from a poor country (Pakistan, Guyana, Jamaica), I'm wondering if you're more likely better off joining your relatives in Queens, the Bronx, even parts of New Jersey in the US, or Scarborough, Brampton, Markham in Canada.

On the one hand the US is clearly often the first choice for immigrants, but on the other hand, NYC is a pretty competitive place and probably more hardscrabble than the economically smaller (but still obviously diverse) GTA.
