If you go by metro, I believe the top three in terms of percentage of top 100 metros: Boston, Syracuse and Albany-Schenectady-Troy.

Butte, Montana has the highest percentage I've heard. There's an answer you wouldn't expect.

As far as those three cities go, it's probably Boston then NYC then Philly, followed by Baltimore and Chicago (in some order, not sure).

NYC has the most actually but a lower percentage

Philly actually the second most but a slightly lower percentage when compared to Boston

Boston has the highest percentage among these (a little higher than Philly) but the smallest population in total.

These are likely the three largest cities in terms of population though

Excellent. I immediately figured Boston would be the densest. And almost exclusively Catholic in the NE. I knew there was a Midwestern representation as well, though the ones in the Midwest might be Protestant as well. It's always interesting to see what historically caused the migration away from the ports of entry.

Some surprises: NO NYC nor Chicago?

The number of Irish American is greater in NYC and Chicago but those cities have more different ethnic that's why the percentage is smaller.
