Hi ckhthankgod. Long time no speak. Thanks for continually posting updates to this thread. I took a brief break from researching upstate NY as I was also looking at the Plano area in Texas. My logic was simple. There are large corporate Asian grocery chains Ranch 99 (Chinese), Mitusuwa (Japanese) and H Mart (Korean) that have several locations there so figured they spent a ton of demographic research to see they had a large market there. I have yet to find any large chain in upstate NY except maybe Asia Market (sorry can't remember the exact name) but was hoping even small local stores would be a sign of a local Asian demographic in the area of upstate NY.


Do you think my assumption is correct?


For example, i've been looking at Amherst in Buffalo area and RIT college area in Rochester as starting points but was hoping to find even that one asian grocery store and then develop a perimeter search for homes in the area but don't want to waste my time doing that if the local asian population don't like to necessarily live near the grocery stores there.


Any thoughts or opinions greatly appreciated!


PS - Using google maps, Toronto seems like a short drive away but am I possibly overlooking something? Part of the appeal of upstate NY, for me at least, is proximity to Toronto and even Montreal to take a weekly or monthly trip. Thanks

You are more likely to find more mom and pop Asian(whether East/SE or South) markets in Upstate NY. In Syracuse, which I believe has the highest Asian percentage of the bigger Upstate cities(due to the higher Ed institutions and refugee resettlement, along with immigration), you can find Asian markets on Erie Boulevard East(not far from University Hill) and on the city’s North Side(where much of the refugee population lives). For Syracuse, in terms of suburbs, the eastern suburban towns of DeWitt and Manlius have relatively substantial Asian populations, especially in certain parts. So, I would say to look for mom and pop markets and looking near major colleges/universities is a good idea too.

Hi ckhthankgod, thanks for the Syracuse tips as well as the mom and pop explanation. I tried looking on google maps for DeWitt and saw there a few Asian grocery stores near Le Moyne college. Is it fair to say there's a large significant Asian population in that area? I also tried looking in Manlius but couldn't find any asian market or college so not sure what other reference I might be able to use other than just driving around looking for Asian people lol.



Also, are there any suburbs closer to Toronto that have decent sized Asian populations?


Lastly, I know you've answered this before so apologies in advance but when would you say it's most likely to snow in those areas? Starting in fall to spring?


Thanks again!

DeWitt has a pretty sizable Asian population not too far from Syracuse University’s South Campus around Tecumseh Road, etc.: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...7-onondaga-ny/

That area isn’t too far from Asian markets on Erie Boulevard East and the Janesville-DeWitt SD is one of the more culturally diverse suburban SD’s in the area(Jews, Arabs, some lower income, but generally middle to upper middle class blacks, Asians in substantial numbers). There are other areas as well.

As for a suburb closest to Toronto, parts of Amherst would be the best bet. I believe around UB’s Main/North Campus(Sweet Home SD) and in East Amherst(Williamsville SD) are a couple of areas that come to mind. https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9116-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9115-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...ct-92-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9109-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9007-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9008-erie-ny/

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...-9010-erie-ny/

I’ll stop, but that should give you an idea of a general suburban area to look into that is within a reasonable drive to Toronto.

I tell people to expect snow from around/just after Thanksgiving to mid/late March. It can come a little bit earlier or later, but that is generally the expected timeframe to get the bulk of the snowfall.
