Whereas pre-1965 immigrants tended to cluster in urban enclaves by nation or region of origin, recent immigrants have diverged from this pattern. Instead, immigrants now demonstrate immediate dispersal throughout a geographic area upon entry, particularly heading for affluent suburbs over central-city enclaves. Wilbur Zelinsky’s model of heterolocalism provides the most conceptually coherent explanation. Using both current and historical census-based data, this study assesses whether Zelinsky’s heterolocal model is apparent in the urban area of Syracuse, New York.
