Yeah, I've heard a lot about Charlotte. What are some other areas where New York X-pats live?

Is the Asheville area a hot spot? Any others in WNC?

Thanks.

Most live in Raleigh or Charlotte metros, especially Cary, NC - "Containment Area for Relocated Yankees." Both of those metros are pretty much transplants from all over, California, Florida, Southeast, Midwest, Northeast - especially New York and New Jersey.
There may be a lot in some of the other areas, I'm really not that sure.

Not sure about Asheville, but it's probably not as 'northern' as Raleigh and Charlotte, but there are probably some there.

I've lived in Asheville for five years now. Can't say there are a lot of NYers around here...maybe retirees, don't hang with them, but this isn't a great place to make a decent living, so most working age people I would guess would have relocated elsewhere in the state.

I haven't noticed any concentration of New Yorkers in the Hendersonville area either. I guess our area is considered too primitive by NY standards. Lots of halfbacks and snowbirds from Florida though.

There have been an influx of NY and NJ in Greenville.

One more time here,why would you want to move around the very people you are running from? You move to NC to be around Tar heels If you want New Yorkers move to New York. Yes people from all over the country move here to be around Nc People The NE presence is still a minority about 18% of population,(based on last censes) and has slowed recently as well,(housing bubble bursting) please come here for the right reasons not to follow a pack of displaced transplants moving based on heresay of NC being the land of OZ.

Most people I know have to consider their employment options... if they are in IT or other white collar corporate work they are going to cluster within a commutable distance from job centers- if jobs was not such a huge factor there would be more families from NY Ct, MA & NJ near Wilmington, b/c we are not used to being so far from the coast.
And, when you think of it, it is because of the economy here that we come at all as opposed to, say, Kentucky or W Virginia or Idaho....

As that is true.
But I think what NC man is saying is not to come here because so and so came here and it is the trendy thing to do at the moment. Which is still a very huge problem for NC state.

But, the original poster was very specific with looking for areas with New Yorkers in their post. That we cannot deny.

My question is what happened to the OP??? So all this might be in vain anyway,
