This map shows the concentration of African-Americans within each ZIP code. The only areas where African-Americans represent over 20 percent of the population are the ZIP codes in/near Rochester and in the Seneca County town of Romulus (which reflects the prison population at Five Points Correctional Facility).
The data for this analysis are from the nine Finger Lakes counties of Chemung, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates.
