QUEENS — While the majority of voters in Forest Hills backed Hillary Clinton, several blocks in the Cord-Meyer section of the neighborhood went red on Tuesday, according to DNAinfo New York's analysis of polling data.
Donald Trump got more than 54 percent of the vote in the area between 66th Road and Jewel Avenue and between 110th Street and the Grand Central Parkway.
In a small portion of nearby Rego Park — between Queens Boulevard and 99th Street and between 64th Road and 66th Avenue — more that 60 percent of voters also supported Trump.
Both areas are known for a large population of Bukharan Jews, many of whom supported Trump, according to Rafael Nektalov, the editor-in-chief of The Bukharian Times.
“Our community is very conservative,” he said.
He also said that many people in the Bukharian community, which has called the area home for more than two decades, were disappointed in Democrats after several corruption scandals in Albany, which he said reminded people of politics in the former Soviet Union.
"People came to America hoping to run away from that," he said.
He also said that many in the community liked that "Trump is not a politician.”
On the other hand, “Clinton embodied the political establishment," he said.
Among other areas in Queens where most voters supported Trump were large portions of Jamaica Estates, where the real estate mogul grew up, as well as Middle Village, Kew Gardens Hills, Howard Beach and the Rockaways.
