Yup, all sound about right. I'd add Rochester and maybe even Buffalo too. Binghamton might be a sleeper.

Buffalo might be perfect in terms of location. Syracuse is about 4 from NYC and about 11 hours from Chicago. There are actually quite a few places for engineers here too. As far as teaching, I think it depends on what your focus is on. Special Ed. is seems to be needed around here.

As far as neighborhoods, you might like the East Side neighborhoods like Westcott, Meadowbrook, Outer Comstock or University. It would be close to Syracuse University and all are diverse neighborhoods that are walkable and have parks nearby. http://university-hill.com/

For affordability and diversity I'd recommend Binghamton. Originally from NYC, I moved to Dade City, FL (1 hour West of Orlando) and relocated after two years.
Happier now than ever.
Good luck in your search.

I wouldn't rule out DC and northern VA. Its pretty compact like most northeast cities with plenty to do. There's four distinct seasons as well and overall educated population.

Also, with Buffalo, you have 9 million people within a 90 mile radius. You are close to Canada's biggest city in Toronto too. Chicago is about 8-9 hours from there and NYC is about 6 miles from there. I know much of the Latino population there is centered around the Lower West Side. I think the Elmwood and North Buffalo neighborhoods would be good neighborhoods to check out there. Hispanics in Buffalo, NY
