Since 1970

It’s interesting to see how New York’s ethnic/racial composition has changed since 1950. This graph from does a great job of illustrating the evolution:

New York City is the center of the largest metropolitan region in the United States,
encompassing 22.6 million people living in 9.1 million homes across three states, 31 counties,
and nearly 900 hamlets, villages, towns, and cities. The combined economic activity of the
metropolitan region, which covers the Hudson Valley and Long Island in New York, southwest
Connecticut, and northern New Jersey, accounted for approximately 10% of United States Gross
Domestic Product and generated $1.9 trillion in 2017, which would make this region the 10th
largest economy in the world.
