Its incredible how much that area of NYC has changed in the last 20 years.

Examples? I’m having a hard time naming a town or city outside the Houston city limits but within the metro known for high crime.

That's not saying much, considering the fact that most of LA's middle class and poor areas are also car-oriented and low-mid density.

Of course it is possible, if the kind of towers that appeal to the wealthy are constructed. There's a $7M downtown condo up for sale right now. Most condos downtown cost much less than that, of course, and rightly so. The wealthy already have plenty of places to live in LA and surrounding communities.

Show me a sunbelt city besides maybe Los Angeles that has a prewar core of 50 square miles with 1000,000 people and a population density of over 20,000 ppsm.

Some of those above listed cities cores are in part a hollowed out shadow of their former selves and large swaths of them could hardly be called "urban" anymore.

Hudson (aka 6th borough) $42,822
So if you took the core to be like 500k from Hudson (basically exclude Bayonne, Harrison, Secaucus and Kearney), the inner half of Brooklyn, all of Manhattan, and the inner third of Queens, then assuming the incomes of those subsections of those counties are the same as the county average, that would give an average of around 53k.

Outer 40% suburbs maybe 50k depending where you draw the line.

The inner ring, which would include the rest of Brooklyn/Queens/Hudson, all of State Island and The Bronx, and most of Union and Essex county, plus inner parts of Passaic/Nassau/Bergen/Westchester would average around 37k.

So the difference between Core and Outer suburbs isn't huge - to try to get to a population of 4m+ in the core, you'd have to take in lower income neighbourhoods like Bed-Stuy, Williamsburg, Corona, Bushwick, Crown Heights and Sunset Park, and parts of Hudson County above the Palisades... but Manhattan is still wealthy enough to bring the average a bit above the outer suburbs.

So the average per capita income of Toronto's core after tax is the same as the average per capita income of Toronto's outer suburbs... before tax. And you know that Canadian taxes are nothing to sneeze at.

Core: Parkdale-High Park, Beaches East York, Davenport, Eglinton-Lawrence, University-Rosedale, Toronto-St Paul's, Toronto-Danforth, Spadina-Fort York, Toronto Centre, Don Valley West, Etobicoke-Lakeshore, York-South Weston

Inner Ring: Scarborough, Don Valley East, North York north of the 401, Etobicoke Centre, Etobicoke North, Mississauga, Markham-Thornhill, Thornhill, Vaughan-Woodbridge, Richmond Hill (Electoral District), Markham-Unionville

Outer Ring: Brampton, Durham Region, Halton Region, Markham-Stouffville, Aurora-Oakridges-Richmond Hill, Newmarket-Aurora, King-Vaughan, Caledon, Orangeville, Mono, New Tecumseth, Bradford-West Gwilimbury, East Gwilimbury, Brock, Georgina

Population
Core: 1,383,109
Inner Ring: 2,691,308
Outer Ring: 2,764,916
Total: 6,839,333 (this is everything that's either in the GTA or CMA)

Pre-tax average income of population aged 15+
Core: $76,499
Inner Ring: $51,103
Outer Ring: $58,361

After tax average income of population aged 15+
Core: $58,012
Inner Ring: $43,060
Outer Ring: $47,474

It's not just a question of Brampton lowering the outer ring's incomes either, even without Brampton, it would only be $62,397 - still well below the core. And even if you swap out the upper-middle class Etobicoke Lakeshore for the working class Scarborough SW, the core would still be at $74,802. So basically no matter how you slice it, the core is substantially wealthier.

Only the suburb manages to surpass Toronto's core - Oakville at $81,800 (although Toronto's core still has 4 electoral districts that are wealthier than Oakville, home to 450,000 people). Even Burlington only comes in at $68,900. Mono, which is a small township of horse farms and exurban McMansion subdivisions comes in at $70,900.

The electoral district of Mississauga Lakeshore comes in at $73,900 and helps buoy the inner ring's incomes. Scarborough averages out at $43,512.

The five lowest income electoral districts in the GTA are Humber River-Black Creek ($37,240), Scarborough North ($38,560), Etobicoke North ($39,760), Scarborough Center ($41,560) and Scarborough-Agincourt ($41,560).

The five wealthiest electoral districts are Don Valley West ($113,600), University-Rosedale ($103,900), Toronto-St Paul's ($96,000), Eglinton-Lawrence ($88,500) and Oakville ($86,600).

The central corridor running north from downtown is Toronto's favored quarter (University-Rosedale, St. Paul's, Don Valley West and Eglinton-Lawrence).

City----Metro Area

Washington DC $210,983----$153,242
San Francisco $198,200----$170,861
Atlanta $195,414----$108,922
Seattle $160,167----$134,220

It's true that wealthy in-town neighborhoods which could be defined as "urban" are pretty lacking in the Sun belt. There are notable exceptions (South of Broad in Charleston, the historic area of Savannah, various sections of New Orleans) but these are the exception rather than the rule. In most cases, the wealthy "in-town" areas are what we'd define as functionally suburban (single-family detached homes on fairly generous lots).

That said, when you're looking at income distribution, it really doesn't matter how urban the core is. Wealthy neighborhoods near the urban core are desirable for other reasons, such as proximity to employment and various cultural amenities.

Neither of us are wrong, just different measures.

"Per capita income in past 12 months (in 2020 dollars)"

https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fa...e/US/INC910220

Why would per capita HH income be lower than per capita personal income?

Is one measure salaried income, or taxable income? Those would be pretty big differences in some jurisdictions.

Manhattan and Fairfield County, and Silicon Valley probably have big differences between salaried income and overall compensation, and would have significant non-salaried (investment) income.

Census Bureau is everyone (i.e. aggregate income / population), not sure what BEA is measuring.

Canadian figures are everyone 15 years and over.

In Toronto, there are 8 wards that constitute the core: Parkdale-High Park, Davenport, Spadina-Fort York, Toronto Centre, University-Rosedale, St. Paul's, Danforth, Beaches-East York.

Of the favored quarter, University-Rosedale and St. Paul's are your classic Brahmin-liberal affluent intown districts. That's where you'll find law firm partners, U of T professors, journalists and prominent people in arts and culture etc., as well as a lot of old established families.
