Most university towns have a decent size Asian populations. Most universities recruit heavily since they get more $$ from foreign students. Pullman is home to Washington State University.

There are eight Chinatowns in NYC. The 'traditional' one in Manhattan around Mott St. is shrinking, but the one in Flushing has nearly a quarter million Chinese in it.

It doesn't make sense to define the growth or decline of Chinese in NYC based on the dynamic of a single neighborhood.

The following table does not describe the growth of decline of the Chinatowns in NYC For that, see below), but it does lend to the fact that NYC's Manhattan Chinatown is not the defining neighborhood of Chinese-Americans it once was (the same phenomenon has been seen in all of Manhattan's ethnic enclaves). Queens and Brooklyn, on the other hand, have seen a huge influx of ethnic Chinese in the last decade or so. Another interesting factoid in all this is that Manhattan's Chinatown was a majority Cantonese community whereas the Queens community is heavily Mandarin.

Rank - Total population of Chinese Americans - Percentage of Chinese Americans

1 Queens, Chinatowns (皇后華埠) 237,484 - 10.2%
2 Brooklyn, Chinatowns (布魯克林華埠) 205,753 - 7.9%
3 Manhattan, Chinatown (曼哈頓華埠) 107,609 - 6.6%
4 Staten Island 13,620 - 2.9%
5 The Bronx 6,871 - 0.5%

Total

(2014) 573,388 - 6.8%

According to a Daily News article, Flushing's Chinatown ranks as New York City's second largest Chinese community with 33,526 Chinese, up from 17,363, a 93% increase. The Brooklyn Chinatown (布鲁克林華埠) now ranks #1 as the largest Chinatown of NYC with 34,218 Chinese residents, up from 19,963 in 2000, a 71% increase. As for Manhattan's Chinatown, its Chinese population declined by 17%, from 34,554 to 28,681 since 2000 to rank #3

I always forget that unless I acknowledge NYC HAS to win this ..... or say AFTER NYC. These other cities have warrant in this it that.

I merely when by knowing Chicago's Chinatown is growing and not shrinking as a ethnic neighborhood in the city. That still stands even if I did not say after NYC. The link also is to highlight growth in ethnic Chinese over just population growth of the neighborhoods known as Chinatowns for many decades.

I'm then surprise other posters didn't note NYC wins hands down earlier? I would never have posted mine. Sorry.
