Inasmuch as the typical MEDIAN take-home pay for a portrait / event photographer in NYC hovers somewhere under $40K,

Really!  Amazing!  That would make them right at home in Brooklyn according to:

Yet recently released census data paints a different portrait. Measured by median income, Manhattan and (especially) Brooklyn are much poorer than you think. Manhattan’s median annual household income is $66,739, while Brooklyn’s is a mere $44,850. Its less fashionable neighbor, Queens, outearns Brooklyn at $54,373 per year. New York City’s most suburban borough, Staten Island, is also its richest, with a median household income of $70,295, while the suburban counties surrounding New York are all richer than any of the boroughs.

Do you think “event photographer” includes wedding photographers?
