Seems to be quite a few people from India in Hicksville. Also Western Nassau County towns like New Hyde Park, Garden City Park and areas within the Herricks school district seem to be attracting many South Asians.

Bellerose Queens (close to LI), and many parts of New Hyde Park

Bellerose you pay Queens taxes but have great schools. NHP area has great schools also.

Agreed. Bellerose, Glen Oaks Queens, New Hyde Park have alot of indians. For good reason too. The Santoor Indian Restaurant (my favorite) is right on Union Tpke in Glen Oaks

Searingtown, Manhassett Hills, Munsey Park and Mutton town are great areas and have a healthy Indian community.

That's interesting..where'd you get this? Maybe Searingtown, but the others, I'm not sure of. Hicksville, NHP, Bellerose/Glen Oaks, Jackson Hts, New Jersey (mostly northern) are NY metro Indian hubs.

I have a few Indian friends all from college, and they all seemed to have settled in Searing town, Munsey Park, and MuttonTown.

Although I did not make anything of it until last fall, when I was helping a friend who was running for local office get signatures from registered Republicans in the North Hempstead area and I was surprised at the number of Indian family’s that are registered Republicans in the area.

Munsey Park? I beg to differ on that one. I think you may mean Manhasset Hills, not Manhasset (Munsey Park).

You know you might be right. I just happen to know 2 Indian friends that are in Munsey Park, so that probably is not indicative of a larger trend.
