Amsterdam, NY is like 30% Puerto Rican.
Schenectady, NY has a large Guyanese population.

The state of NY is also trying to revive Utica by placing tons of poor immigrants there. I'm sure it'll work tremendously like the rest of NYS's plans.

Actually, Utica is a refugee resettlement hub and has been for a while. Some places are selected due to certain factors like non profit organizations available to sponsor them and is nationally based.

Bosnians make up about 10% of the cityís population, along with quite a few SE Asians and (East and West)African refugees.

It is also a city known for its high Italian population that used to be and still is to a degree, concentrated on its East Side.

True. In the Midwest we have dozens of small towns that were populated more than 100 years ago by certain ethnic groups. Here's a few examples from Iowa:

Decorah, Iowa (Norwegian). The town celebrated it's 150 anniversary a few years ago. They invited King Harold of Norway to the celebration. He accepted and actually stayed for a few days at the Motel 6 in Decorah, Iowa. This might be the only Motel 6 in the world with a real "Royal Suite."

Spillville, Iowa (Czech). The town was so Czech that the famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (The New World Symphony) actually lived there for a couple of years. He enjoyed the town because it reminded him of Czechoslovakia.

Pella, Iowa, and Orange City, Iowa (Dutch) Pella currently has the largest Dutch windmill in the U.S. It was built about 20 years ago in Holland and shipped piece-by-piece from the Netherlands and reassembled on the town's square. It's a fully-functioning windmill that can grind grain into flour. Pella also plants more than 50,000 tulip bulbs and hosts an annual Tulip Festival. The festival started more than 70 years ago when Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands visited the town and gave it a gift of 10,000 tulip bulbs.

Not a small town but St. Louis has the largest Bosnian community outside of Bosnia (70k) -- bigger than many small towns.
