First of all, Howard Beach isn't "rich." You want rich, you go to suburban New England. Howard Beach is working class. Second, it isn't really that white. Only the Irish folks there are really white. There are many Italians there, and Italians are not really white in any real sense of the word. I'm Italian, and I'm more brown. I've been called "dago" and "greaseball." My ancestors have been discriminated against. Italians were lynched in large numbers in the South. Sacco and Vanzetti. Italian slums. So, no, Howard Beach isn't really that "white." Trust me, no rich whitebread WASP would wander into Howard Beach, see those guineas and call them "white." Guineas are guineas, not really "white". Howard Beach is also very diverse, too. Many different ethnicities.
Howard Beach is in Queens.
