What town (or dare I say, Census Designated Place) in suburban Baltimore is 20% Italian?

New York doesn't have a high percentage of Irish because the Italian and Jewish population crowds it out (the Irish presence is still strong due to sheer size, however). Again, here are the stats for Italian, Irish, Polish and Jewish ancestry.

New York - 30.13% of MSA (61.76% of non-Hispanic Whites)
Philadelphia - 32.67% of MSA (53.05% of non-Hispanic Whites)
Baltimore - 21.75% of MSA (36.28% of non-Hispanic Whites)
Washington - 15.65% of MSA (32.25% of non-Hispanic Whites)
Atlanta - 12.25% of MSA (25.55% of non-Hispanic Whites)
Richmond - 12.07% of MSA (20.07% of non-Hispanic Whites)

Baltimore is a bit more "ethnic" than DC (though it feels different because communities are longer-standing). It is exactly between Richmond and Philly.

Maryland has only one "town" that's around 20% Italian. Luke, MD is 20.40% Italian and has a population of 80.

Luke, MD. It's not a "town" though since that really doesn't exist in Maryland. Luke is in Western MD, btw.

I had to edit that as it was Irish that I saw. Italian was more like 15%. Also, Baltimore and Howard counties are the only places in the state with no incorporated municipalities, but the rest do, so not all town in Maryland CDP's, only Baltimore and Howard Counties.

What about interior Northeastern and Great Lakes cities like Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago etc.?

I was surprised when I left for college that a near majority of (non-hispanic whites) didn't have a vowel at the end of their last name.

I've done calculations for these cities before, but I'll have to track them down. Chicago was lower (around 43-45% of NHWs maybe). But it skews much more German and Polish than the Northeast cities do. Same goes for Pittsburgh though it has a stronger Italian influence than any Midwestern city.
