TL;DR: Massive disparity in per capita fatalities along socioeconomic status. Several hundred deaths per 100k people in West Queens (poor) vs. only one hundred-ish, on average, for lower Manhattan (definitely not poor). Similar story for The Bronx, also notoriously poor. So the poor could be a factor of ~2 or 3 more susceptible to covid-19 deaths, is my interpretation. Probably related to both pre-existing health conditions and lack of informed personal behavior.
