On Traditionally Blue Upper West Side, Trump Earns Votes in Lincoln Square

By Emily Frost | November 10, 2016 5:22pm

LINCOLN SQUARE — The Upper West Side is known as a liberal bastion and has been for decades, but Tuesday's presidential election results show there are pockets of red in an otherwise blue neighborhood.

From West 72nd to 125th streets, support for Donald Trump represented just 7.48 percent of the area's votes — less than the Manhattan average, where he got 9.8 percent of the vote. 

But there were districts to the south of the area in question that had much higher volumes of Trump supporters. Those areas were also some of the most expensive when it comes to real estate, data shows.

In Election District 100, which runs between West 65th and 62nd streets from Columbus to Amsterdam avenues, 33.3 percent of residents cast a vote for Trump, data shows.

The districts that voted the most for Trump perhaps unsurprisingly included Trump Towers along Riverside Boulevard.

In Election District 45, between West 66th and 70th streets from Freedom Place to Riverside Boulevard, 20.94 percent of voters picked Trump. 

Surrounding districts directly south and north of District 45 voted in similar percentages for Trump, with between 19 and 20 percent choosing him.

Trump also picked up votes from about a fifth of the voters in the districts around Columbus Circle.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton's heaviest support came generally from districts above West 96th Street.

For example, between Amsterdam and Manhattan avenues from West 101st to 105th streets, there were two districts where Clinton got more than 92 percent of the vote.
