Yes. Atlanta is a bit too black for my tastes, and the traffic is terrible. New Orleans is too exotic for me, I think.

Both have affordable housing and have their Italian communities. If you want more information, just let me know. Here's some information to view: Rochester Wiki - The People's Guide to Rochester

Buffalo does sound interesting. I'll take a closer look at that one.

No there is an Italian Scene in Indianapolis.
heck in downtown there are quite a few good italian resturants.

If you want a happy medium, look into North Buffalo around Hertel Avenue or nearby Kenmore. If you consider Rochester, perhaps the Southeastern Quarter of the city or Brighton. Places like Gates, East Rochester, Greece, Kenmore, parts of the town of Tonawanda and a few others, area communities between the two areas with notable Italian populations.

Allentown in Buffalo and around Neighborhood of the Arts in Rochester are known as areas with a concentration of same sex households or are viewed as Gayborhoods.

*Disclaimer* New York state in general has VERY high taxes. especially Property taxes and most of NY state outside of New York City is not in good economic shape and is still recovering from the Rust Belt years.

Heck even NYC isnt that great off. Unemployment has been rising in the empire state and NYC status as the financial capital is there however the middle class is being driven away due to the insane Cost of living and tax/nanny state structure in the city.

Dont get me wrong NYC would be a great place to VISIT but not live in.

Actually, overall housing costs in Upstate NY are on par with much of the South, even when factoring in taxes. Actually the same goes for overall COL in Upstate NY as well.

Also, the economy will depend on what you can do for work and I posted openings for the industry the OP is looking for. Upstate NY isn't just full of factories and farms, as there are plenty of colleges and some white collar jobs up here as well. Unemployment rates in many of the Upstate metros are at or below the national rate.

I don't know how NYC got involved in this, when it wasn't mentioned.
