Geographic proximity has nothing to do with.

If that were the case, why does LA have so many Persians and Armenians? Why does Minneapolis have so many Somalis and Hmongs? Why does Houston have so many Vietnamese?

If you think California is a slouch when it comes to Asians, you're either delusional, or just ignorant. In that case, time for you to do some research. California is filled with Asians. We're talking about the entire state, not just a city. California is definitely in the top 3 in terms of states with the most Asians.

Actually, it does. I'm not saying proximity automatically means a guarantee people will move. In saying that, proximity is definitely a factor. Do you think it's a coincidence California has millions on Mexican and Asian residents?

If you want good Mexican food, California is great. Asian food, NYC wins.
You keep thinking that.

Ummm...you can't make a broad statement like that.

Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, and Thai food is definitely better in LA than NYC. Chinese, Indian, and other South Asian food is better in NYC.

New York City has more people than the top 3 California cities combined. It's simple numbers.
And if you knew remotely anything about California you'd know that the Asians flock to the suburbs, not the city. The LA suburbs of San Gabriel Valley trumps anything in New York, and the Silicon Valley area has a large concentration of Asians too.

I'd put California Chinese food a step above New York as well.
