  2. Wikipedia re: neighboring county Suffolk: “In 2008, Forbes magazine released its American Community Survey and named Suffolk County number 4 in its list of the top 25 richest counties in America.”

    Both Nassau and Suffolk are the two most racially segregated counties in the entire USA.

    • I think that’s the crucial thing for the people who have pushed back against this, saying “Well, the US is about 73% white too.” The topline numbers might line up, but Nassau is a very particular place, not representative of just about anywhere else.

      New York City is a train-ride away. This could be much more diverse with basically no additional effort.
