I'm not sure about 80 different cultures/languages, but this area comes to mind: Northside UP - The Northside Urban Partnership | Syracuse, NY

Right where I live, in the UNT area. People of different backgrounds. Plenty of Middle Easterners and South Asians.

With that category, most cities (especially mine) would not qualify. 80 is a ridiculously high number. Only a handful of large cities have that much diversity within the entire city, let alone specific neighbourhoods.

I don't see why language even matters. Sure, language definitely gets you diversity brownie points, but if you have an area with a vast array of people of differing ethnic backgrounds, from all over Europe, Africa, Latin America and Asia, it doesn't matter if they all only speak English, they still have different backgrounds and cultural experiences. I'd say an area where there's tons of ethnic groups that speak mostly only English is more connected than a place with just a random group of people who only speak foreign languages. Thats just a UN convention! LOL

Philly has a good deal of diverse neighborhoods today, but I have to mention the neighborhood I grew up in, Mount Airy in Northwest Philly-cited by many civil rights groups as one of the first successfully integrated neighborhoods in the US. Residents in the 1950's-70's organized to combat racist real estate practices at the time like redlining, white flight and blockbusting. It is still very diverse today, along with neighboring Germantown.

In terms of languages, immigrant communities and ethnic diversity- South Philly, Olney, Northeast Philly and West Philly are probably most diverse.

I live right outside of NYC, I definitely would not say it's "segregated". Many neighborhoods are extremely diverse.

It varies by neighborhood of course, it sounds like you lived in uptown Manhattan or the Bronx which are not nearly as diverse as say, Jackson Heights

As I said earlier, Jackson Heights Queens has over twice as many languages spoken. I'm sure there are many other Queens neighborhoods with 80+ languages as well. Probably in some other boroughs too.
I have family in Kensington, Brooklyn and it's extremely diverse, I wouldn't be surprised if that many languages were spoken there too.

This area of Buffalo is very similar: About

City of Buffalo - Neighborhoods - Map Collection - University at Buffalo Libraries

West Side – Buffalo Rising

A rebirth on Buffalo's West Side - Story

This area of Rochester is also similar, https://rocwiki.org/Northwest_Quadrant

A common theme is that all of these areas were once areas where the Italian community was concentrated(and Germans as well), with quite a few still in these areas. However, all of them also have their share of immigrants/refugees, as well as other groups. All 3 have a range of neighborhoods economically as well.

New York City proper has been measured as the 13th most segregated city in the country.
https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...st-segregated/

New York's metropolitan area as a whole has been ranked as the second most segregated and the fourth most segregated in two different studies:
Segregation declines in Chicago, but city still ranks high, census data show - Chicago Tribune
Most Segregated Cities In America - Business Insider
