Good news New Yorkers! According to the New York Post,
Nightlife areas such as SoHo, Murray Hill and the Upper West Side are home to 10 times more syphilis-infected residents than the city’s average, according to the city Department of Health.
Roughly 125 people — taken from a sample of 100,000 — tested positive for the disease in those three neighborhoods.
But don’t think it’s only those fancy rich parts of the city getting infected.
The Tremont section of The Bronx — where 43 percent of residents are below the federal poverty line — is home to the city’s highest STD rate, the study found.
Syphilis and HIV are both most prevalent in Manhattan. On the other hand, Staten Island has low STD rates, so if you are get syphilis, the good news is you probably aren’t spending much time in Staten Island.
