Hi, wondering what the average rent is in a decent area. 2 bedrooms, 1000sqft.
Currently pay $1250.00 in Hartford, CT.


Also any Russian/Polish or any Slavic communities present in the city?

Here that would get you a top of the line 2 br apartment, though you might make less money here too. You could go as low as 700/800 and get an older but functional 2 br in a safe area. I'm sure there are a few Slavic or Russian people here though not a large number. My family doctor is Bosnian.

Other poster covered rent pretty accurately I think. There's not a huge Slavic presence but there are some, but not especially compared to further north in Cleveland or Detroit. I was surprised to read on Wikipedia recently though that West Beuchel is the most Yugoslavian city in the country, at least according to the 2000 census, and which I'm assuming is percentage, not number, probably immigrants from the war I'd assume but I don't really know. There is a Bosnian bakery in that area. Right down the street is a small but nice Russian grocery too. There was a very interesting little article about it in the local alternative paper: 2015 Winter Dining Guide: Mt. Everest View and Golden Key Grocery - LEO Weekly. There was a Russian restaurant downtown that closed last year (though it was more of a sandwich place than a Russian restaurant), but otherwise there aren't any other Slavic-based or owned eateries or establishments that I know of.

Louisville received a lot of Soviet refugees in the 80s and 90s. The majority were Jewish and live in the east end. I'm Jewish and went to The Temple (one is actually called that) and there were quite a few older Russians. Like 50s-70s. The younger ones have mostly moved to NYC, Chicago, SF, LA. But there are still some left here. The city welcomed quite a few Bosnian refugees as well during the Balkan War. I'm sure both they all have their own communities, I'm just not sure where.

I live in one of the best apartment complexes in the city apparently. Wasn't even aware till I moved in and then people told me that lol. I was just in the leasing office the other day asking a question. I overheard a couple asking about 2 bedroom rents. There is a 2 bedroom going for under $1000/mo right now, and this is a beautiful complex in a really great area. $1250 will get you more than you could even think of probably haha.

I'd guess Slavic immigration peaked during and after the Bosnia War in the mid 1990s, the same way we've gotten a lot of Iraqis and Syrians this decade. When I was 16 I worked at a fast food restaurant in Lexington that was ran by Bosnians, they were great people. BTW I'd guess the largest Slavic community in the USA is in St Louis, home to at least 70k Bosnians.
