Thank you Todd, for finding the statistics on this. I think the assumption is that because many of the buildings in Jackson Heights are more owner occupied than renter occupied our incomes on average are higher.  However, I just had friends try to find a decent apartment to rent in Astoria, and crappy one bedrooms were going for 1800 at minimum.  They found a beautiful two bedroom here for the same price.  My husband and I couldn't even find a reasonable apartment to buy in Astoria under 300 thousand.  So I don't see how NYCMac gets the impression that Astoria's average incomes are lower than ours.  It seems to be that the way the real estate market and rental market are going there, only people with higher incomes will be able to live in Astoria.
