To be fair Kathryn, the first tow links are for City population only. The third is more telling, and they now estimate the Hispanic population in Metro Atlanta to be between 500,000 to 700,000.

The City of Atlanta unfortunately has lost a lot of Hispanics on the Northeast side due to extreme gentrification in the Lindbergh Center area. They were pushed out to DeKalb County, and are now being pushed out to Gwinnett.

You keep moving the goalposts all you want to further your agenda, yet you still refuse to answer my original questions. Now you change them again to 'an Atlanta journalist' and Nola nightlife.

Just give it up, it isn't working.

OK. I wasn't aware that we were only discussing metro areas, not just cities proper. But going by that, Atlanta metro area is about 10 percent Hispanic, not 5 percent. I guess coming from Texas, that's just a bit underwhelming.

Not to mention that Birmingham metro area doesn't even register when it comes to Hispanic population.

And the core city is always the most important part of a metro anyway

Metro Atlanta is over 10% Hispanic. What about Metro Birmingham?

And just like D.C. and Boston, our core city is the most important part of the Metro, but only contains about 10% of the population. It isn't the whole picture in any of them though - so no when it comes to demographics. Immigrants head straight to the suburbs now for instance in all 3, not the core. Most can't afford it.

Nice try, though.

NYC is way more expensive than Atlanta, and still has a very large immigrant population. I can't speak for other city's, but NYC's reputation has pretty much nothing to do with its suburbs.

And while I'm sure Atlanta has been getting more expensive, it looks like there are still a lot of relatively affordable apartments.

No they are, I would’ve told you this myself; Atlanta has more Hispanics overall. But that wasn’t my point, I said Birmingham had bit larger Hispanic PRESENCE. There’s more Hispanics in Austin, Texas than Orlando, but Orlando has the larger presence.

Hair Salons, Latino Festivities, Restaurants, Taco Trucks, Clubs/Bars, etc.

It’s not a LARGE number of Hispanics here by the numbers, but the ones that are here, they surely let it be known that they too, live in Birmingham.

It didn't make the list of metro areas with "high" Hispanic populations. I guess you could look it up if you're interested. Personally, I've been to both B'ham and Atlanta many times (and recently) and didn't notice any significant Hispanic population or influence. But like I said, I'm coming from Texas, where Hispanic influence is very pronounced. Interestingly enough, as I've stated before, here in Texas, white non Hispanics make up less than fifty percent of the population. Personally I like the Texas melting pot.

OK. You apparently live there, so I'll take your word for it, but I certainly never noticed it in my many recent visits to Birmingham. (The large company I worked for has headquarters in B'ham so I was there often on business over the past five or six years.)

I also used to live just outside of Atlanta and still have many friends and connections in that area, so I tend to travel a lot between Texas and Atlanta (and straight through Birmingham) and it's just not a "presence" that is very noticeable to me in either place. To me, it's a lot more of a noticeable "presence" in Arkansas and Louisiana than in Alabama or Georgia in general.
