But with more and more South Asians (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc) migrating to the West, especially in the 21st century, the term "Asian" is gradually broadening to include people from the Indian subcontinent.

In the UK, I've heard that "Asian" to them are people of South Asian descent. As to relate to what you've said above, it may be because South Asians make up the much the greater share of Asians living and immigrating to that country.

I didn't realize that Boston has the fourth largest Chinese population in the US with 177,684. Only NYC, SF, and LA have more.

historically, the terms middle-east, far-east, near-east were respective to their distances from england.

At this point in time, I would just go ahead and merge the cities in Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 together into one group.

So meaning the group should have Washington D.C., Houston, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. I lived in 4 out of 6 of these places, you don't really ever feel like the presence of Asians or their amenities and things are amiss in any of those 4 as well as the other 2 too. All of them feel like a definitive tier below the cities you have in Tier 1 but markedly higher/better than the cities listed in Tier 5 with regard to raw numbers and sheer scale of the total overall population (save for perhaps San Diego and Sacramento; the latter only for its percentage feel) IMO.

Other than that, I'd say good work all around. I agree with the rest of it resoundingly.

Middle Eastern and South Asians are BOTH Asians and should be considered as such.

In the UK and Canada, Indians and other Brown people are considered Asian.

I would look at tiers more as % of the total population and not just the sheer number. Places like Seattle, San Diego, Sacramento, Honolulu have a higher % of Asians as a % of the total population. King County (the county that Seattle is in and Bellevue) for example is 17.4% Asian (and that % is growing rapidly). I would say the Seattle metro feels much more Asian then Chicago, DC, NYC, Houston for example.

I agree that it is a component to consider, but it is not more important (until you reach a certain threshold which doesn't really exist in the US). A higher percentage contributes to the vibe and overall Asian influence, but a large absolute number allows for greater variety of amenities that does not exist at the lower populations. e.g., I agree that Seattle overall feels a little more Asian than NYC in some intangible way, but there's definitely way more available by way of food and cultural offerings in NYC than Seattle.
