Which US MSA has the most regionally influential Asian American population outside the traditional big 3 centers (and Hawaii).

I'm thinking probably Seattle, Boston or DC (the MSA).

Not sure about Boston - I know it has a big Vietnamese population but yeah. I'd agree with Seattle and maybe Boston or DC after Seattle. After that would probably be Chicago and Houston (Chicago moreso in the suburbs actually).

By MSA? What about San Jose? San Francisco has 1 million Asians, San Jose has around 550,000

Places of any size? Then San Diego (11% and above 350,000), then Seattle (10.4% and above 430,000) and Sacramento (13% and above 295,0000).

Places above 5 million people? Washington (9.4% and above 550,000) and it's not even close. Followed by Houston (7% and above 430,000), then Chicago (5.6% and above 600,000), then Dallas-Fort Worth (5.3% and above 390,000) and Boston (5.3% and above 400,000) [tied].

It's MSA for all the places except Boston, I used CSA otherwise it's raw numbers would make it fall beneath all the others despite it's percentage taking a slump by 1.5% or so.

Has to be Honolulu. Just given the abundance of Asian actors, athletes, politicians, and musicians from Hawaii, it should easily be one of the most influential. It should even be included in the same class as LA, NYC, and SF.

Its going to be Seattle and DC in my opinion. San Diego has a lot of Asians (mainly Filipino), but I don't know if I would call them influential. Houston's Asians have a decent deal of influence on the city culturally. Dallas' Asians are all in the suburbs so they don't have much influence on Dallas itself.

True but OP did reference Hawaii in the same class.
