The ethnic enclaves are pretty set in California. Every ethnic group in LA has a neighborhood, and some parts of the Bay Area have a high percent of Asian immigrants.

There is an enclave in Louisiana where a group called islaneos live, they trace their ancestry to the Canary Islands. They reside in the St. Bernard Parish.

White ethnic enclaves still exist in a few areas:

  1. Religiously/culturally isolated groups. Mainly talking about the Amish and the Hasidic/Haredi Jews here.
  2. Areas which have recent immigration from Europe. I know Brighton Beach in Brooklyn has a lot of Russians, for example, and I'm pretty sure there are portions of Chicago where recent Polish immigrants are concentrated.
