Don't know why it's so difficult to get a head count on the jewish population in Baltimore. Anywho, were apparently only going by city limits.

So enclaves, Puerto Rican and latin/ Hispanics in general are in South East Baltimore and immediate suburbs, Polish are scattered, Irish is scattered, Italians have an enclave in the city, but a mostly scattered particularly in the north eastern suburbs. Jewish are in Northwest Baltimore and suburbs to the north and west Of the city.

Boston is also 5% Dominican and over 6% West Indian though... there's a clear difference between Baltimore and Philly-Boston. But imo philly is more like Baltimore than NYC it's almost a mix of Boston and Baltimore but leans Baltimore. DC is more like Boston mixed with Philly. Boston stands alone but oviousky is most similar to Hartford Providence New Haven Worcester Lowell Etc... NYC stands alone but is most similar to Jersey City Newark Bridgeport and Stamford.

Each city seems to be an outlier in one category or another except for Philly.

Those are outdated by like 6 yrs ... Now in 2016 , Philly is probably like 9.5% Puerto Rican, NYC is 8.5%, Boston is 6%, Baltimore and DC are both almost 1% each.

The main difference is in Philadelphia, African Americans and Puerto Ricans still make up the vast majority of non-whites, Dominicans and West Indians, tho growing and starting to be noticeable, still are tiny compared to Ricans and Blacks. In Boston, about half the blacks are West Indians, and there's just as much Dominicans as there is Ricans. NYC is mega diverse, almost plenty of nationalities can be found there in sizable numbers, about one third of blacks are West Indian, a small number are African and the rest is African American, with Dominicans and Ricans are predominant among Hispanics.

DC and Baltimore are noticeably different. In DC, its mainly African Americans, who are very southern compared to NY or Philly, who make up the majority of blacks, tho there are small West Indian and African populations. Also Central American groups make up almost half, which is completely different then most other metros, especially on the east coast. Baltimore is a very black and white city, tho it does have growing West Indian and Hispanic (Mexican/Central American, Puerto Rican/Dominican) populations its very very small compared to the rest of the Bos-Wash corridor. Bmore is starting to get a lil run-off from DC, Philly, or even NY. And Tho it is changing, right now Baltimore is still very black and white.

In the DC area? Nah bruh. I would say DC has the second largest if not the largest African population in the US.

That poster didn't seem to know what he/she was talking about? Run off from DC? Carribean population being new to Baltimore? Are ethnic enclaves new to Baltimore too?

Baltimore's West Indian population is recent. No city south of NYC was ever a big magnet for West Indian migration historically (except Miami, obviously).

South Philadelphia has the strongest concentration of Italians I could find in any urban context.
