Near colleges in Upstate NY would be fine, as would certain parts of the metro areas. Same with NYC and vicinity.

I'd think most every major city has Muslim areas of town and it's more about where you want to live rather than where is the best place specifically for Muslims - unless you want to be around a large density of Muslims.

Even in Kansas City, which has about 20K, there are many wearing head scarves from the NE Side to Midtown to S KC - no hassling I know of here, in the news anyway. Figured most cities had their Muslim areas and that hassling could potentially happen anywhere in the US.

About a dozen mosques in KC..

Based on some of the ignorant posters here, we can easily see why a Muslim might feel unsafe or the object of ridicule.

To the OP, there have been some good suggestions in this thread already. I will also add that American universities are seeing a sharp increase in the number of students from Middle Eastern countries---Saudi Arabia in particular---and if you could find an area around a large university in a decent-sized city, that might meet your needs. Even on Pittsburgh's campuses it's not uncommon to see women covered: it's not a common sight, and Pittsburgh is still generally conservative, but in and around the university districts you'll find clusters of diversity, ethnicity, and tolerance.

LOTS of scarfed Africans in the Twin Cities area (I guess that indicates they are Muslim....didn't necessarily know that). I think they fit in relatively well considering the glaring differences in culture, but there are definitely some people who do not understand the culture and I have heard of people lashing out against them....although I believe it's fairly uncommon.

please exclude dearborn , MI because despite of big Muslim population the are is not safe and full of racial tensions .

Beside acceptance for Muslims the city shall have affordable rentals and good employment opportunities
and shall preferably have a nearby aerospace industry


thanks

Of those, Plano definately has the most pronounced Muslim community. There are quite a few Mosques in the area, a Muslim association sponsors many of the streets, many Halal markets and restaurants, and there are Muslim schools in the area.

I live in Plano and I have more than a few Muslim families in our neighborhood. Everyone gets along quite well.

I definately dont want to say the others are not Muslim friendly, but Plano will have the highest concentration of Muslims and they will be the most visable here.
