New York

Here’s what “they say”:

The New York metro area has by far the largest number of African-Americans — over 3 million…Despite a recession and high unemployment New York City still meets all the criteria of a great city for singles. We’re talking world-class nightlife, culture and, yes, jobs, which often means lost of eligible bachelors.

Brooklyn and Harlem boast some of the most concentrated enclaves of African-Americans and Afro Caribbeans. And there’s a guy for every taste—from suit and tie banker types to athletes, boho artsy and hipsters.

    Um Washington DC is a huge negative. Very large population of gay African American men, also an overall high HIV rate. Ladies, beware!

    I guess it depends on whose dating experience we are talking about. A few of those cities post a much higher black woman population than black men. Factor in gays and the socially inept…well, I for ya sistas.

    New York definitely has the hottest guys as far as singles, but there are a TON of pathological liars here too.

    Moved up from the South to Minneapolis some years ago and as a Black male, I loved it. There’s a much larger Black population than I had thought, and there’s a wide variety of Black women (African American and African). And of course there is quite a large number of white girls always looking to get their swirl on. I’m sure the African American women don’t care for the situation, but if the men are happy in a certain town, the women usually aren’t (ratios ain’t right), and vice versa.
