Boston, Baltimore, and Washington DC probably have a sizable number of Orthodox Jews.

Believe it or not Houston also has a sizable concentration as well especially in the Meyerland area.

While there are Orthodox Jews in every major metro, I would guess the NYC Metro area has at least 10 times as many as the next metro.

Brooklyn alone has vast Orthodox Jewish concentrations, in Borough Park, Midwood, Crown Heights, Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Sea Gate, Mill Basin, Georgetown, etc.

Then in Queens, you have Kew Gardens Hills, Jamaica Hills, Briarwood, Far Rockaway.

On Long Island, you have West Hempstead, Five Towns, etc. etc.

In the Bronx you have Riverdale.

On Staten Island, the Willowbrook area.

In Westchester, New Rochelle and environs.

In Rockland/Orange, Kiryas Joel and a ton of others.

In NJ, Englewood, Teaneck, Pasaic, Deal, Elizabeth, Livingston, West Orange, and others.

According to Wiki the top Populations (in Thousands 000's)

1 NYC 2,028
2 LA 662
3 Miami 337
4 Philadelphia 286
5 DMV (including Baltimore) 276
6 Chicago 265
7 Boston 261
8 Bay Area 219

American Jews - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is a map by County, not surprised to see the County I grew up in Bucks PA very High, I would say about a third of the population around me was Jewish, I was surprised later in life there were so few Jews in other places

There is a sizable Hasidic congregation in St Paul. Every Sabbath you'll see them walking to temple, sometimes for miles, in any weather.
