    Figure 5.4: Age-adjusted death rates, NYC 2012 ZIP codes in the Chelsea-Clinton, Central Harlem-Morningside Heights and Washington Heights-Inwood neighborhoods had the highest HIV diagnosis rates in 2012 (Figure 5.2). In 2012, ZIP codes in Chelsea-Clinton, West Queens and East Harlem had the highest HIV prevalence (Figure 5.3), and ZIP codes in Bayside-Little Neck, Port Richmond and Canarsie-Flatlands had the highest mortality among persons with HIV (Figure 5.4). Many ZIP codes with high HIV diagnosis rates also had among the highest poverty rates (Figure 5.1), including High Bridge-Morrisania, Hunts Point-Mott Haven and Crotona-Tremont. The Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood was the exception, with the highest HIV diagnosis rates in NYC but relatively low poverty and mortality rates.
