Sure, you would meet Italian-Americans who moved down from the Northeast or Chicago after college or grad school to take a job in Atlanta at the Catholic parishes on the north side. However, is there a presence of Italians that don't have this prescribed demographic? Either earlier arrivals who opened stores and whatnot, or more recent arrivals? It seems that recent arrivals to the US come to work in tech or to open nicer "white tablecloth" restaurants. That might be stereotyping, but that's what I see.

Any opinions or input?

Husband is a first generation Italian American from New York. Pretty much Italian as it gets and we moved here from NY two years ago tomorrow.
He loves Atlanta. We both do. (I'm a Norwegian from Minnesota)
Our Roswell neighborhood includes three families with Italians from the Northeast and they all prefer Atlanta to the NE.

Pretty much all the Italians I have met in Atlanta were from Boston and most of the ones I've met live in Woodstock. The age range is mid-20s to late 60s. The couple in their late 60s is planning to move to Savannah.
