I'd throw in Woodside too, has alot of Irish immigrants still living there but its demographic is changing too as more South Asians and Hispanics move into the neighborhood.

Whitestone has the right "look" but its still mostly Italian.

Staten has plenty of those type of neighborhoods.

Also, southern Brooklyn and Queens.

Many parts of the nations capitol until the late 50's and early 60's. Now there are no neighborhoods like this in DC - not one. However, the "Bunkerish" housing stock you refer to is still there

Same thing with Alexandria and Arlington until the mid 70's or 80's. Northern Virginia is still extremely diverse but the irish catholic neighborhoods have been broken up a bit. I am a product of these neighborhoods on one side and then I have greek relatives from DC. Still a heavy population of Greeks in Northern Virginia and Montgomery county Md. Everything has been broken up.

Baltimore has Dundalk, Essex, Locust Point, Curtis Bay, Edgemere, Pig Town, Hampden and more but I'm not sure if the irish/polish/russian racial make up is still in tact these days.
