Here's the Vietnamese profile for NYC.. ~ Older STATS going over half decade.. so must assume there's an increase since then!!

AS for the rest of the STATE~~

Lots of OLD stats.. But one thing I have noticed in my Lifetime is Vietnamese people are VERY low profile and tho very friendly went dealing with them.. THEy don't make any waves and create any behaviours that single them out!! Quietly support each other and mind their own business types :-)
A lot of those are vietnamese chinese, and in those restaurants they speak chinese.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese also run the Thai restaurants

Before Mexicans came to New York in large numbers, they even opened up a lot of "Mexican" restaurants

North Koreans? I heard there are quite a handful of North Koreans who speak Chinese. Or vice versa...Chinese who lived near the border who speaks Korean and Chinese. I thought it was very interesting

There was a Little Saigon and a very large Vietnamese community and I felt more at home there. Boston also has a sizable Vietnamese population as well in the city and the suburbs. On a whole, I like New York better but I feel like as someone who wants to keep in touch with my culture, I'd prefer somewhere with people like me. Why is there so few Vietnamese in New York when there is a large overall Asian population? Are there any neighborhoods in New York with Vietnamese that I'm missing out on?
As other people have stated, there's not much of a coherent Vietnamese community in NYC. Chinatown has an area with a number of Vietnamese restaurants and stores, but those are mostly run by Chinese from Vietnam (some from families who have lived in Vietnam for generations often with some Vietnamese ancestry). As far as I know, there's no sizable Vietnamese community in NYC except for a small recent immigrant community in and around Kingsbridge Heights in the Bronx and probably other scattered communities. For the East Coast, it's pretty much bits of Boston and South Philly. While those cities/metros have similar total numbers of Vietnamese, NYC has the community scattered geographically and socially whereas larger intact communities exist in Boston and Philadelphia.

Not really North Koreans, it's mostly ethnic Koreans that have been in the parts of China (part of a region formerly known as Manchuria) that migrated there first economically and then politically after Japan's annexation of Japan and then further reinforced by the turmoil of the Korean War, and now to a much lesser degree, the refugee from North Korea.
