WASP neighborhoods and cities
Like other ethnic groups, WASPs live in proximity of each other in close
social circles. Neighborhoods and cities with large populations of WASPs are
oftentimes the most sought after neighborhoods of the city. These areas are
largely exclusive and upper class with top private and public schools, high
family incomes, well established Christian church communities, and with
high real estate values.
Some of the most prominent (either a "majority" or sizable percentage) WASP
Boston - Beacon Hill and Back Bay. Historically Brookline and Newton;
however census statistics show that now British-stock Americans (calculated
as the sum of the various British ethnic group ancestries plus "Americans")
are vastly outnumbered by other groups in these towns : British ethnic
groups are 15.6% in Brookline and 16.1% in Newton, whereas the Irish are
comparable at 16.3% in Brookline and 13.4% in Newton, Asian Americans are 15
.6% in Brookline and 11.5% in Newton. The Jewish population of both towns,
not the British population, likely holds a relative majority with roughly a
third of all individuals in both towns. With the recent ascendance of
affluent White ethnic (Ashkenazi Jewish and Irish) and Asian (primarily
Chinese) populations, the two towns' voting patterns have begun to match the
strongly Democratic allegiances of other heavily Jewish and Asian towns
across the country. In Brookline, Donald Trump won only 17% of the vote, and
in Newton, he won only 11%, whereas in towns that (still) have British-
stock majorities (such as Essex, Tolland and Warwick in Massachusetts, all
with absolute British majorities), voting tends to be more mixed.
Chicago - North Shore, Evanston, Hinsdale, Lake Forest, Kenilworth, and
Cincinnati - Indian Hill and Springboro.
Cleveland - Shaker Heights, Bratenahl, Hunting Valley, Kirtland Hills and
Dallas - Highland Park, University Park, and Preston Hollow.
Detroit - Indian Village, Boston-Edison, Palmer Woods, Grosse Pointe and
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, along with suburbs northwest of Detroit.
Houston - River Oaks and Memorial.
Los Angeles - Bel Air, Brentwood, Century City, Pacific Palisades and
Westwood, Agoura Hills, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Simi
Valley, Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village.
Maine - Coastal towns, particularly Bar Harbor.
Maryland - Chevy Chase, Homeland, Potomac and Roland Park, as well as parts
of the Beltway surrounding Washington, D.C.
Miami - Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Palm Beach.
Montreal, Quebec -traditional WASP bastions were The Square Mile in the 19th
century, and later Westmount and the Town of Mount Royal, with the young
sometimes spending a few years in nearby Notre Dame de Grace, referred to by
WASPs and anglophones alike as "N.D.G.", and, occasionally, Cote des Neiges.
New Jersey - Cherry Hill, Princeton, Lawrenceville, as well as other
communities in central and northern New Jersey.
New York State - Manhattan's Upper East Side and the Upper West Side, Park
Slope, Forest Hills, Rye in Westchester, Long Island's North Shore and The
Orange County, California - Irvine, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and South
Ottawa, Ontario - WASP enclaves include Rockcliffe Park, New Edinburgh, and
Lindenlea. Other WASP areas include(d) Sandy Hill, The Glebe, and landscaped
parts of Old Ottawa South between the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal,
particularly those with fine views of the water, along The Driveway.
Philadelphia - Society Hill, Main Line, Chestnut Hill, Chester County, King
of Prussia and Upper Darby.
Phoenix - Scottsdale.
Rhode Island - Newport, College Hill, and Watch Hill
San Diego - Neighborhoods of North San Diego such as La Jolla, especially
around Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, La Costa, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana
San Francisco and the Bay Area - Nob Hill, the part of Palo Alto near
Stanford University, and affluent suburbs of Santa Clara County.
Seattle - Medina, Washington, Hunts Point, Washington, Mercer Island,
Washington, Broadmoor, Seattle, and Laurelhurst, Seattle
Toledo - Perrysburg
Toronto - Rosedale, Bridle Path, Moore Park, Deer Park and Yonge and
Eglinton Area, Forest Hill (later changed with an influx of Jews)
Vancouver, British Columbia - Shaughnessy, Kerrisdale, Kitsilano, Jericho
Beach, Point Grey, Dunbar, and South-west Marine Drive, and, on the North
Shore, West Vancouver, with its communities of Ambleside, Dundarave, and
Caulfeild (including the jocularly named "Tiddly Cove"), Whytecliffe,
Horseshoe Bay, and, most importantly, The British Pacific Properties (
commonly shortened to "The British Properties", originally developed by the
Anglo-Irish Guinness family). The character of all these districts is
changing rapidly with the influx of non-WASPs, notably affluent Mandarin-
speaking Mainland Chinese, and, along with them, particularly on the North
Shore, Iranians, who began arriving in large numbers with the overthrow of
the former Persian monarch, the Shah.
Victoria, British Columbia -the Uplands, and the neighbouring municipality
of Oak Bay, jokingly described as being "beyond the Tweed Curtain". Much of
Vancouver Island was home to retired British and British Indian army and
Royal Navy (incl. R.I.N.) officers, colonial administrators, and civil
servants, and scions of the Landed Gentry. Debrett's "The English Gentleman"
described southern Vancouver Island, with its communities of Esquimalt,
Shawnigan Lake, Qualicum Beach, and, of course, the capital, Victoria, as
being "just like home", meaning the Home Counties and nearby parts of
Washington, D.C.- Georgetown, McLean, Reston, and Alexandria.
