It appears that New York is one of the most segregated cities based on residential segregation. Here are links to a couple of rankings that shows the most segregated cities for Blacks and the most segregated for Latinos based on residential patterns.

Not according to Census Data. Orange County is the most integrated region of the U.S.

Funny how you think SF is well integrated. Rich white people and the homeless. That's integration?

Here are the rankings according to the 2000 US CENSUS.

Top 10 Most Segregated Cities (in order from one to ten):
Milwaukee
Detroit
Cleveland
St. Louis
Newark
Cincinnati
Buffalo-Niagara Falls
New York
Chicago
Philadelphia
(tie) New Orleans and Kansas City

The 10 Least Segregated Cities (in order from one to ten):
Orange County California
San Jose
Norfolk-Virginia Beach
Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater
San Diego
Providence, Fall River, Warwick
Seattle, Bellevue, Everett
San Antonio
Oakland, CA
San Francisco

googlize it!

I can speak for Chicago and say that the city itself is very diverse, but it certainly isn't integrated. It may seem that way when you're downtown by the Sears Tower, or shoping on N. Michigan Ave. But it certainly doesn't seem integrated in Bronzeville (this country's largest ghetto), or Little India (E. Devon), or Humbolt Park. You can almost drawn ethnic lines on a map. Every little neighborhood has different ethnicities that predominate. My neighborhood is dominated by new African immigrants, Eastern Europens immigrants, and a bunch of young college students.

just fyi
How come "Orange County" is included in a list of *cities*? Aren't they throwing in an apple with a bunch of bananas? What if they compared Milwaukee County instead of Milwaukee, Wayne County instead of Detroit, etc.? I'm guessing the numbers would come out somewhat different. For example, I know most Milwaukee County suburbs are virtually all white. Perhaps the same with Wayne and the other counties in which these cities are located?

I would have to disagree. In Manhattan you have Chinatown, which is pretty much all Asian. Then there is a pocket of housing projects on the East River in the LES, overwhelmingly Puerto Rican.

Next you have the rest of manhattan up to E 96th/W 110th. South of those streets is overwhelmingly White. North of E 96th on the East side the area is overwhelmingly Latino. Mostly Puerto Rican and Mexican. PR's control the housing projects then Mexican or PR tenement blocks. Mexicans on the major streets, PR's on the cross streets.

In Central Harlem, area is overwhelmingly Black. Next West Harlem above W 110th, was overwhelmingly Black, now is Dominican (small pocket of Whites south of the housing projects on 125th Street). Then Washington Heights, heavily Dominican.

Take a look for yourself:

I'm shocked Houston was mentioned this late in the thread. Compared to many cities it's size, it's a success story. You can very well live next door to Vietnamese, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Chinese, etc. etc. all on the same block. It is very diverse and very integrated. You do have a couple hoods that are majority whatever like 3rd ward for Blacks. But those are historical hoods that are being integrated now themselves.

About Chicago. The city is integrated on the Northside. You have all types of people living amonst each other in a very densely populated area. BUT, you have 2 other sides well 1 if you want to get technical lol. And that was already mentioned. And this is why Chicago is said to be segregated. From what I heard though, it was worse a long time ago and is getting better.

LA's Hispanic population is approaching 50% of the city. It's diverse, but NYC is untouchable.

Houston and San Antonio. Almost all of Texas. Hands down. Unarguably. Black, white, Latino...it doesn't matter. Everybody shares in culture, racial turmoil is unheard of, everybody's friends. Can't remember the last time I experienced such an environment outside of these two cities. And I have been many places.

Now, New York City. In Brooklyn, back in the '60s when they were "busing" in different races to schools, my mother came into contact with all colors of children. Sometimes they were friends, sometimes they weren't. But family that lives there now tells me that it has changed so much.

Houston did have an incredible mix. I would not mind settling there. The mix is really good here, too, but now that I come to think of it, Houston also had the large Vietnamese population, where there are not many Asians here except some Asian Indian and Caribbean Chinese.
