While the Hudson Valley can boast some of the wealthiest communities in upstate New York, it is also home to some of the Empire State’s poorest cities and villages, according to a newly released report.

Using data from the latest U.S. Census, New York Upstate determined the poorest places to live in upstate New York, including a pair of communities in the Hudson Valley.

The report only includes locales from upstate - which is considered by the website to be areas north of Westchester and Rockland Counties.

The study evaluated median household income, family income, non-family income and the total households in each community in upstate New York.

Hudson Valley communities to make the top-50 list:

Pine Bush, Orange County (sixth overall):

  • Median household income: $26,964;
  • Family median: $75,357;
  • Non-family median: $19,063;
  • Total households: 719;
  • Previous rank: 11.

Kiryas Joel , Orange County (16th):

  • Median household income: $30,525;
  • Family median: $30,688;
  • Non-family median: not listed;
  • Total households: 4,100;
  • Previous rank: 6.
