There are four other boroughs outside Manhattan. If you really wish to experience an alternate universe in NYC, travel to the South Shore of Staten Island. The population is almost entirely white, middle-class, and votes Republican en masse. The latter is a complete anomaly even for New York State!Quoted for partial truth. I live in one of the most popular breeder neighborhoods in NYC (non-Manhattan), and 200k HHI seems like an accurate entry point.
