I was born and raised in Rochester, but I moved to NYC after college. My wife and I are now strongly considering relocating (a return, for me) to the area. She is hispanic (Colombian) and of course enjoys the diversity of the NY/NJ area, and so do I. We'd like to find places where that same diversity is celebrated.

So, can you get some good empanadas in Rochester? I'd like to have some places to show her next time we visit.

Look into Morristown, NJ. They have one of the highest percentage of Colombians in the entire country. Morristown is also a very diverse (white/black/hispanics live there) and is considered to be a quite hip/interesting town in NJ.

Dover, NJ (in Morris county, note that there are two Dovers in NJ) also has a large Colombian population. Dover however lacks much of the diversity of Morristown and is just predominantly hispanic.

i'm pretty sure they poster is looking to relocate to Rochester FROM the NYC/NJ area. Rochester does have a relatively (for upstate ny) large hispanic population....but it is mostly puerto ricans.

Thanks for the info, everyone. Definitely helpful.

It's correct, we are looking to move TO Rochester. We actually have looked at many parts of the Tri-State area and found most things to be very pricey as far as what you get for your money.

You definitely get more square footage for your dollar in Western NY, from what I've seen.

Our main concern is the job market. I'm in advertising, which is easier to come by in Manhattan of course.
