But you previously mentioned that parts of NYC (like Queens) are an outlier so much so that Asian-Americans are poorer than other minorities like African Americans and Hispanics. I can't imagine that scenario to be the case in many Californian cities.

How does the non-immigrant Asian-American socio-economic status compare between the NY'ers and Californians (second generation and later)?
