Going anecdotally and from my experience/network, Seattle is a good answer if you are looking over the past decade or two. Perhaps given the new tax in Vancouver more Chinese buyers will flood the Seattle market, but I don't think it has happened quite like some were predicting. For a more recent percentage growth, I think Dallas and Orlando are near/at the top. Dallas is still well behind Houston but has received a lot of secondary Chinese growth and the influence there is becoming more prevalent. Orlando has boomed quite recently and probably will continue to do so.

Miami is perhaps a wild card...there's definitely been a marked increase in Chinese real estate buyers, and Miami carries so much recognition/cache that I believe this will continue. There are plans for a grand Chinatown development (ala Las Vegas) in North Miami and considering how small the population had been any influx will be a substantial increase in percentage.

By the way, I am Latino.
Hey, an Iowan who does not like diversity. Surprise!!

Maybe they're following you for other reasons or they aren't following you at all? I hope you're not upset about the Great Wall.

I do not mind them working, since I am descendant of immigrants myself (Mexican).

What I do not like is them following and staring at everyone just because they have black hair and assuming that I am Asian or even part Asian. When the fact is that I am Latino.

According to the 2000 census there are only ~11,700 people that identify as Chinese in the entire state of Iowa and you are saying that they all follow you around? You must be special and visit all corners of the state frequently.

Do you how know many negative "assumed" habits someone can say about any group of people including Mexicans?

He didn't say he does not like diversity, he said he doesn't like mainland Chinese.

This means he may have a more favorable opinion of insular Chinese (Taiwanese) or people from Hong Kong, Macau, or ethnic Han from Singapore, Malaysia or other Southeast Asian countries.

Also, as a Latino, he contributes to the existence of ethnic diversity in Iowa.

NYC: 17,301
Los Angeles: 11,924
San Francisco/San Jose: 10,082
Washington DC: 2,366
Seattle: 2,252
Boston: 2,182
Chicago: 2,102
Philadelphia: 1,764
Houston: 1,734
Dallas: 1,193

It's interesting that DC's metro has gotten a pretty large influx, but still Chinese food there has been generally ranging from mediocre to horrid while Chicago and Philadelphia both have great standouts.

This is a horrible measure. It completely ignored Chinese immigrants from other nations and Chinese people, both immigrants and their descendants, migrating between US cities.

That's true but what's the alternative? If an ethnically Chinese Malaysian immigrates to Los Angeles there is nothing that will capture that data. They will simply be counted as Malaysian.

Yeah. I mean maybe it's not horrible but using that data still leaves plenty of speculation for the OP's question.
