A mix, but more white collar and including politicians as well. It is an area where seriously about 90% of those that graduate from the school, go on to college and the overall grad rate is usually well into the 90's in terms of percentage.

A lot of the families have roots in the Irish neighborhoods in the city like Tipperary Hill on the city's West Side and moved into the Western suburbs.

Some other Canadian cities:

Montreal is historically divided east-west, with the east being working class and francophone and the west being more affluent and anglo. The Jewish population has moved westward over time, from near the city center, to the Mile End and Outremont by around WWI, and to the suburbs of Hampstead and Cote St. Luc after WWII. There is also a large Jewish population in Westmount. Italians moved from Little Italy to the eastern suburb of St. Leonard. Westmount and the West Island suburbs are also a lot more francophone than they used to be.

In Winnipeg, the North End of the city was home to large Ukrainian and Jewish communities while south of the river was more affluent and WASP. After the war, Ukrainians and Jews both moved to the northern suburbs. However Jews began moving to the south as well, to River Heights and later Tuxedo, and today most Jews in Winnipeg live south of the river, while the northern suburbs have the highest number of Ukrainian Canadians.

It seems fairly common for Jews to have "switched direction" in metro areas where they started out on the poorer side of town.

In San Francisco, while it used to have quite large Irish and Italian populations, no enclaves really emerged in the suburbs.

You must remember that a majority of the Jews on Long Island are reform Jews who heavily inter-married with non-Jewish whites throughout the 60s to today. I have at least a dozen friends I called Cashews, half Catholic/half Jewish. However, if the children dont practice any religion, which is actually the case very often, then you have a reason for the lower Jewish population.

Also, aethiesm and agnosticism numbers are rising on Long Island, meaning many people on the Island are actually turning away from any religion, especially the young.

In LA, African Americans moved from South Central, South West and South East LA to the Inland Empire and the Antelope Valley far to the North East and East of the city. Only the area around Inglewood and Baldwin Park remains predominately black.

Mexicans went from being mostly on the East side, to pretty much dominating not only the east side, but the South East, and South Central parts of the City.

Armenians started in the eastern sides of Hollywood and then moved into Glendale.

Koreans started in the areas just west of downtown and moved into the Gateway Cities around Cerritos and San Pedro.

Filipinos started in the Carson area and then expanded into the IE.

I'm pretty sure the intermarriage rate for Long Island Jews is below the national average though. Also, Jewish population studies usually include those of no religion.

So for the Jews it would be west to mainline, spattering East to Cherry Hill NJ as one example and NE to NE Philly/Eastern Mongomery county and Bucks so they went many directions

Same with Ilalians with maybe a high concentration in S Jersey and Delaware counties but still numerous migration to Montgomery and even Bucks counties so maybe no core movement

Irish migration seems even more fragmented here
Puerto Ricans also pushing deeper into the Northeast (and into Bensalem). They are also winding up in Mt. Airy in non-insignificant numbers nowadays.

Here are some clues, though this is just recent migration. For the NYC boroughs (I'm not including the 4 most urban boroughs).

Bronx: 8,119 went north to Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Dutchess (5,237 to Westchester), 2,750 went to the northern New Jersey counties of Hudson, Passaic, Bergen and Essex, 1,131 to Long Island, 937 to Fairfield

Brooklyn: 5,531 went to Staten Island, 5,245 to the NJ counties of Essex, Hudson, Middlesex and Union (though most of this - 3,817 went to the more urban Essex and Hudson), 3,835 went to Long Island, 3,807 went north to Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Dutchess (1,648 to Westchester), 1,157 to Fairfield

Manhattan: 7,766 to Hudson, Bergen, Essex, Middlesex, Morris and Union, 4,228 went to Westchester, 3,072 to Long Island, 2,508 to Fairfield

Queens: 14,402 to Long Island (10,535 to Nassau, 3,867 to Suffolk), 3,515 to Hudson, Bergen and Essex, 1,665 to Westchester

Staten Island: 1,294 to Monmouth, NJ

Denver Italians moved from NW Denver to the western suburbs.

Is there anything close to resembling an Italian enclave in Denver?
