Question What is the Brazilian population of your city?

What is the percentage or population of Brazilians living in your city? Also, is it less popular for Brazilians to immigrate to the U.S. than other Latin Americans?

The local Brazilian Coummunity Center estimates there are 30,000 to 40,000 in Metro Atlanta, mostly in suburban Cobb County.

We are seeing increasing ties to Brazil here, with daily nonstops to Sao Paulo and Rio as well as a new Consulate opening soon.

Why are they choosing Cobb County instead Atlanta proper?

Thumbs up Sao Paulo---!!WOW!!

You know out all skylines, I have never seen Sao Paulo's until I saw the movie Blindness. I think Sao Paulo has a very intriguing skyline. I think there should be a thread devoted to it and more pictures of it. When I first saw it I could not figure out what city it was, and I can tell most of the cities of the world by just looking at a building or two, but Sao Paulo has a unique skyline that I've never seen before!

I've been noticing a lot more Brazilians here in Los Angeles. It sometimes is hard to see who's Brazilian or not because the country is so diverse. Most of the Brazilians I know here are either Black or Pardo. I don't know their exact numbers though.

Fogo de Chao is a national chain, they have it in a bunch of cities. Here in Philly, we have a pretty sizable Brazilian population in the Northeast. Estimates are 15,000....most coming from Minas Gerais and Goiás states that tend to me on the rural side. Here's a good article about the neighborhood they've settled:

I am from Sao Paulo, Living in Miami and everyday i go shopping i hear people speaking in Portuguese (Which you can't even compare to the amount speaking Spanish, more then half the people speak spanish)


I was surprised when i didn't see Sao Paulo in the top ten list for most buildings and when i searched for it on skyscraperpage.com i got this ( http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?10=2 ) 306 buildings I can see much more then that from my grandmas house there!
Emporis lists 5,453 buildings and 556 U/C which is correct ( http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/ci/bu/sk/?id=101076 )

Sao Paulo probably had more then 306 buildings in 1947 let alone 2008 - Look at the pictures from that date: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=161713

*(I sent a email early 2008 requesting a change in the Sao Paulo building count but nothing happened)

stop being foolish. Emporis building count is also incredibly wrong. São Paulo has over 40 thousand buildings over 12 floors, according to a list SSC forumer Cello got from a friend who works in the City Hall.

But you must remember that NEITHER Emporis nor SSP can have the correct lists JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT. Compiling such lists is an incredibly hard work. Do you think that just because you sent an email to SSP, the SSP owner (who maintains the forum in his spare time) will hire like 50 different people to go to São Paulo and compile a complete list??


Both SSP and Emporis lists depends on CONTRIBUTORS! Emporis has about 5 brazilian editors, thats why they were able to compile a list of 5 thousand buildings. If you want both lists to grow, HELP them grow by working on compiling such lists.

too many brazilians in London. Maybe its good for them, but it sucks for brazilian tourists.

I mean, I dont want to hear portuguese in every corner while visiting a foreign city!


Plus, when I was in London I was in a bus and reading a Tube map to discover what station should I enter to reach Canary Wharf.

And there was this hottie with big tits sitting on my side, and I said that to my friend, in portuguese "olha os peitos dessa mina ali" (look at that chick tits!). A few moments later, I asked him "do you think we should get out here to reach "x" station?

And the "english" hottie answered in perfect brazilian portuguese "no, wait for the next bus stop".

here in toronto, i have personally counted 294 brazilians. (mostly from bumper sticker flags)
altho, i have also counted well over 1000 'portuguesians'(?) -whom oscillate between being this or that -especially during soccer season -which seems perpetual -for them.

How exactly do you find out the population of Brazilians in a given US city or metro area?

While there are no precise estimates of how many Brazilians are living in Salt Lake City, the Utah Brazilian News and the General Consulate of Brazil in Los Angeles estimate that there are approximately 10,000 living in the State of Utah. This is in addition the the 30,000 Utahns who speak Portuguese, primarily because a large number of Utahns have lived in Brazil for Mormon missions and have learned the language and come to love the country, its culture and its food.

Salt Lake City - Brazil ties are also evident in that Brazil is home to seven Mormon temples (it is a high growth area for the Mormon Church), and in that Salt Lake City is one of only 18 American cities that is home to a Brazilian Consulate.

Salt Lake City is also home to the Utah Brazilian Festival, with an annual attendance of around 12,000.

Here is a quick shot of part of this year's events:

I'm guessing Brazilians are more receptive to mormonism since the mormons try to convert absolutely everyone, but why I don't know.
