Has anyone come up with ideas about Presbyterian areas -- preferably with those of Anglo-Saxon descent?

Bronxville, Rye, Pelham Manor have historically been WASPiest. Over time it has become less so. Don't overlook Darien and New Canaan Connecticut.

Thank you, but I'm not looking for WASPy generally. I'm looking specifically for Presbyterians of Scottish descent, and preferably those who settled here in the 17th and 18th centuries. I prefer to live near those who are precisely like me and who share my beliefs. Moreover, my people have endured centuries of suffering at the hands of the English. (I was even forced to work in London for them.). Given our suffering, we need to be together so that we can commiserate.

I recommend Rye Presbyterian: http://ryepc.com/

Or, a rye presbyterian: Presbyterian Cocktail Recipe - How to Make a Presbyterian Cocktail Martini

For a wry Presbyterian.

Why not identify a church with your form of faith and speak to them to find out where congregants live? I could tell you my neighbors are protestant but as to what flavor or national origin I would have no idea. You may also find those born/raised in the USA for a few generations don't maintain the "traditional dislike" of the English as you do. Unless it is still taught from the pulpit???

I know right? This is a JOKE people! Aimed I'm sure at all the posts on this board asking about how many whites/Hispanics/Indians/Asians/Jews/multi-racial families/other-people-like-me/etc... there are in this or that town.

If the OP didn't tip you off, the follow-up certainly made it obvious. Or so I thought...
