I never noticed Syracuse being that ethnic. They must not be first generations, because no one in the area was from another country who I met.

Well, here in Stockton CA, mexican and white have the biggest populations. Most of the immigrants from Mexico live on the East side, but they actually live all over the area.

Some are. Our Vietnamese community definately is pretty new and if you went down Butternut or Lodi Streets on our Northside, you will see Vietnamese establishments. Actually, down North Salina Street you see some african stores too. Some newer immigrants also work at the University and live on the Eastside by the campus. There are some Italians that are pretty recent. A lot of the Hispanic community is too. Some come from downstate, but some come directly from Puerto Rico, Cuba and a few Mexicans, Dominicans, etc.....

I still never met one person from the entire area who was from another country, and I was there for college for 3 years.

Well, it depends where you go in Syracuse. I drive through the Northside either to and/or from work at night and there definately is a Vietnamese community in Syracuse. Some are even moving into the Liverpool area closer to Syracuse by Carousel Center. That area is actually very diverse, but pretty poor to working class. For instance, I work at SU and I've met people just in my department that were originally from Lebanon, Italy, Bosnia(forgot them too, mostly on the East side of the city too by the University) and the Ukraine. If you went to places like Jerk Hut on South Ave. or Jamaica Finger Lick on West Onondaga, you would know we have a few Jamaicans and some other Caribbean people too. We actually have a little festival. That's where you meet people from other countries. At the cultural festivals at Clinton Square in downtown Syracuse, you will see and meet people from other countries. Our Hispanic community is growing steadily. Same with our Asian community. I would think you could meet some people from other countries in a city with a world class university.

Ethiopians - Little Ethiopia.
Western European expats - Santa Monica.

Japanese - no real central lotus, but there is Little Tokyo and Sawtelle + Gardena and the South Bay.
Jews - Fairfax District + Pico/Robertson district (working class ones) West LA/Beverly Hills/Tarzana/Southern SFV (upper class ones) ; SFV= Encino, Woodland Hills, Calabasas and Sherman Oaks.

Hipsters - Venice, the Silverlake/Los Feliz/Echo Park/East Hollywood nexus, and the Downtown Arts District; growing numbers in Koreatown, Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Atwater Village (those neighborhoods are still gentrifying)..
East Hollywood? Is that a newly defined neighborhood, or are you just referring to the east side of Hollywood proper? Just curious, never heard the term before.

It's the eastern side of Hollywood, which is kind of sleazy but is thankfully receiving some TLC through gentrification.

East Hollywood, Los Angeles, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The far NW corner of the city as well as areas along 3rd Street around I-264 is Louisville's "Hillbilly Ghetto", an area where most residents are recent transplants from rural Appalachia.
Sort of like a replay of Alexandria from what i gather.

Irving Park: A few Romanian places still holding on; hints of Serbian (borders Albany Park);

Lincoln Square: German

Greektown: self-explanatory

Bridgeport: Irish, Italian, increasingly Mexican, some hints of Lithuanian still lingering, and some spillover from Chinatown

Pilsen and Little Village: Mexican

Humboldt Park: Puerto Rican

Jackowo: Polish

Clearing and Garfield Ridge: Polish with hints of Lithuanian

Beverly and Mount Greenwood: Irish

Edgewater: hints of Ethiopian here and there

West Ridge aka West Rogers Park: Indian, Paki, some old-school Jewish
