These are the neighborhoods that give the worst tips on food delivery

One of the reasons the rich keep getting richer is apparently because they don’t tip their delivery guys.

Food delivery site Seamless recently joined forces with StreetEasy to map the median tips given to food delivery workers across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. It then compared the average tip in a neighborhood to its median asking rent to see if there was a correlation. Turns out, there is! And it’s the bad kind.

On average, those who live in more expensive neighborhoods tend to tip delivery workers less. The neighborhood with the lowest median tip in the city was ritzy Carnegie Hill on the Upper East Side with a stingy 12.3%. (That townhouse isn’t gonna pay for itself, amiright?) In fact, Manhattan was the worst borough overall when it comes to tipping. The most generous? Brooklyn. 

See the top 10 tipping neighborhoods below. Keep spreading that love around, Greenpoint.
