Important to note that while big cities are more diverse they are also more segregated. In the south for example you will find blacks and whites living amongst each other it is common place to have a black land owner and a white land owner living in their double wides side by side. Where as in major cities they are all segregated by race/ethnicity so one can make the case that rural areas are more diverse. Also there are more blacks in the south than the north, the north just has more of an international flavor.

It depends on the neighborhood and rural area as well. It isn't odd to find some neighborhoods in some of the cities mentioned where there is no predominant group and there is a substantial amount of multiple groups as well.


Even in the South, there are rural areas that are homogeneous or are overwhelmingly of one group.


As a specific area in regards to the thread, this area of Syracuse fits for sure: Northside UP - The Northside Urban Partnership | Syracuse, NY It is where you can find refugees from SE and South Asia, East and West Africa and the Middle East, some old/die hard Italians, Germans, Irish, along with African Americans and Hispanics. There are tracts where there isn't a predominant group on this side of town and you can find a range of places of worship, as well as some restaurants/markets(Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian, etc.). This neighborhood has also seen some gentrification from some in the local LGBTQ community: Hawley-Green Neighbors

It also has a range of neighborhoods from lower income to upper middle class.

I know itís not fair, but I tend to discount the diversity of cities that achieved diversity through refugee resettlement.

Sounds like Nashville, seems like that's what every one expects of Nashville, to be mostly all white until they take a visit or trip there to show that definitely not true!!

I didn't think people outside of the area were aware of this.

Of all the places that surprised me on how diverse they were, the main one is Garden City, KS. The Hispanic, Asian, and black communities are very visible.

I guess Liberal a little further south is similar in terms of demographics.

Any college university city that is also a smaller major city would fit that bill......

Newburgh is a smaller city that is similar, as 19% of its residents are of Mexican descent and 10% are of PR descent: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3650034


Same with Middletown, where 13% of its residents are Mexican and about the same percentage are of PR descent: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3647042


The thing with that Dutchess and Orange counties area(formerly the Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown metro area), it was one of the most integrated top 100 metros before it was gobbled up into the NYC metro area. So, you can find visible to high percentages of Black and Hispanic folks throughout that area and both groups had/have median household incomes in the mid to high 50,000's in that area. Hence, why it had the smallest per capita income gap between Whites and those groups, with Asians actually having an even high PCI in the area. It also has rail service into NYC, as some in that area commute to the city.


Another city in that area: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3605100
I think there might also be a sizable Mexican population in rural Ulster and Dutchess counties.
