I know in Buffalo, the Westside north of Downtown is mostly Hispanic/Puerto Rican. The East is mostly black, The northside is white (Italian), andbthe southside is also white (Irish).

But what about Rochester? Where do blacks, Hispanics/Puerto ricans, and whites live? Ive heard in the Roc, that blacks and hispanics are more integrated compared to buffalo, and live in the same hoods separate from whites, is this true?? Where are there neighborhoods?

It isn’t necessarily that cut and dry in Buffalo now, but those are historically where said groups are concentrated.

In Rochester, Hispanics tend to be concentrated in the NE and to a little bit lesser degree, NE Quadrants. It is the NE and SW historically for Black residents, with quite a few in the inner NW Quadrant. Keep in mind that Rochester is about 42% Black, which is the highest percentage for a major NYS City. Its SE Quadrant is predominantly White, but the outer NW/Charlotte and portions of the outer east/NE are as well. There is some crossover between all 3 groups in all of the quadrants, but it may be a matter of just more of one group though.

Oh and for Asians, I’d say parts of the SE Quadrant and the NW Quadrant. For the SE, most are more College/University/Medical affiliated and in the NW, I believe it is more of an immigrant/refugee population. In Buffalo, the West Side has a more immigrant/refugee Asian population, with North Buffalo and I believe even east of Main Street near UB’s South Campus has more of a college affiliated population.

I’d say in terms of Rochester, that the NE may be the best choice in terms of relative balance of all 3 and having some solid/nice neighborhoods. When I say this, an area like this comes to mind: Census Tract 005400 in Monroe County, New York

Yes...Actually, in the Latinos in the Mohawk Valley article, it mentions that Dominicans make up about 11% of that population. Some live around Bleeker Steeet, where there are Dominican barbershops and restaurants.

Rochester and to a lesser degree, Syracuse also has some Dominicans as well.

You may find some Mexicans sprinkled in there, with some living in the farm towns near Rochester and in the Watertown area due to the military presence. Some may also live in the bigger cities as well.

As I mentioned in the Black thread, the Watertown area, if you don’t mind a smaller area, could be a good spot for businesses that serve the Hispanic/Latino population there for similar reasons. Many live in the similar areas too(on/around Fort Drum, Watertown, etc.). So, Indian River, Carthage and Watertown are the school districts where most reside in that area.

While not big numbers, you can find some Cubans in the bigger areas as well. Have met a few in the Syracuse area. Same with those roots from Central and South America.
