The black population in Queens is fairly prosperous. Queens doesn't have a big AA population, and it tends to be Caribbean second-third generation civil servants. They're homeowners living in semi-suburban surroundings. City and transit jobs in NYC pay very well. I don't think CA has a West Indian population, anywhere.

Also, there are some black areas of LA that have pretty high incomes, probably higher than Asian parts of the SGV and places in Northern OC. Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights and the like.
