Where to find Limeys Stateside

Or at least those born in these parts.

This has been 'borrowed' from the New York Times, which has a whole range of interactive maps showing birth nations of sundry ethnic groups over the last 100 odd years. That the East and West coast metropolises are so popular is no great surprise, ditto Florida, but there are some oddities - why Phoenix, Arizona and why Cleveland, Ohio?

Phoenix is a boom town, Cleveland Rocks!

Wyoming looks like a good place to get away to when the need arises.

And by the time I get to Phoenix, she'll be rising...

I've been led to believe Cleveland is a hellhole.

Mind you Wyoming is not exactly crowded with anything, bar steers.

No, Cleveland is not a hellhole. Horrible city and county government, but decent enough people offset the local corruption.

In answer to your question about all the Brits being in Cleveland, there is a bi lateral chamber of commerce operating here. The BACC/ Great Lakes Region.

Address is BACC

L - Thanks for that, and apologies for having slurred your neck of the woods.

It'd be interesting to see the reverse map - 'Yanks in Limeyland' - wouldn't it?  

Blogger Croydonian said... 5:39 pm

Julia - it sure would. I think the smarter central London post codes would win big.

BE is right. Scottsdale in particular is remarkably relaxed and pretty wealthy. Cleveland is busy/prosperous - more of a buzz. Totally different lifestyles, though.

Croydonian, no offense taken. We may not have a ballet company anymore,but atleast we still have the Cleveland Orchestra.

Anyone who has ever been to these parts would know that I would have benefited from keeping my mouth shut for once.

I think I'm more curious as to why so many Polish people make a bee-line for Chicago...
