A friend of mine is teaching the South Korean equivalent of Human Geography in Seoul (hes fluent in Korean). He said the new edition of his textbook has listed Atlanta as one of five centers for east Asian cultures and populations in the United States. The other four cities mentioned were New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.

He said he will try and scan an image and email it to me when he has time. Each city is pictured, along with their name (not sure if the name is in Korean or English).

Awesome news for our fair, international city!!!

Kirkwoodhipster,

Dude... everyone already knows this

Case in Point.. look at the city of Johns Creek

2007 9,571 Asians 13% of Johns Creek
2011 17,925 Asians 23% of Johns Creek

That is almost a 100% Asian population growth for the city in 4 short years... not 10 years...

At this rate the Asian population is growing 250% every decade in Johns Creek. Please tell me another Asian mecca city in this country that has this kind of growth.

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area (California) where there are a plenty of Asians! We moved here last year, I can attest that I can find 99% of the Asian grocery and restaurants here in JC/Duluth that I had access to in CA. I was expecting much less, so I was very pleased! Apparently, there IS enough of an Asian population to support all those stores and restaurants. Minus the hot/humid weather and the much cheaper housing, it's like we never left CA.

Not until we're the Catholic mecca, too. Then it's banned as everyone will have mecca-ized Atlanta.

Talking about stores, I was recently surprised to find out that there are more Hmarts in Atlanta than there are in all of California. That just blew my mind given that California definitely has a larger Korean population base than Atlanta...for now.

For all of east Asia or just Korea? For Asian culture in America, there are a handful of cities I'd put before Atlanta, and for Koreans, Dallas is definitely right up there with it.

Does Atlanta even have a Koreatown in its city center?

Awesome news, but I would like to see the number of Asians moving to metro Atlanta per year quadrupuled. It seems like it's all word of mouth right now, as the rest of the U.S. refuses to acknowledge our robust growth. One idea would be an advertising campaign that actively works to attract more Asians to the region from places like Los Angeles and San Francisco, and maybe even Seoul and Beijing.
