NYC. The big banks swap employees between New York and London. Probably the easiest way to get a work visa for a Brit, and vice versa.

Retirees are a different questions.

Many British people fall in love with the Desert Southwest.

Brits generally aren't concentrated geographically all that much and are pretty assimilated by even the 2nd generation. But nowadays they seem to gravitate towards New York, Florida, California and Washington State.
I'm late getting here but wanted to add that Fall River and Lawrence MA were magnets for British people 100 years ago because they came to work in the textile mills. Those mills are gone now and those days are gone.

But there is a large British population in the small city of Newburyport MA. My husband is British and barely a day goes by that he doesn't run into another Brit. There's even a British store for foods and other goods. Bring your wallet though as Newburyport is really an expensive (though beautiful) place to live.
