There is a relatively large Portuguese population in Newark NJ in the Ironbound neighborhood
There are also a lot of Irish immigrants in the Woodlawn neighborhood of The Bronx in New York

But I also have to ask — why would Western Europeans need to come and live in the U.S now?

The same reasons Americans move to Europe (work, school, experiencing a different culture) I suppose

Lots of popular Euro restos have opened their first ever US locations here as well, given the popularity back home that appeals to visitors and residents from there —French Riviera based Baoli; Italy’s Santa Margherita Winery Le Centrale; Positano’s Le Sirenuse, London based La Petite Maison; Amare (sister resto from Michelin starred chef of Bacco Osteria in Puglia), London based Novikov, etc. Clearly, Miami’s main appeal/emphasis is on the Latin American market but there certainly is a European presence here (residents, establishments) that comes as a surprise to some.
Although I don't know that much about Miami, it doesn't surprise me at all. It seems to be fairly cosmopolitan even if it leans heavily towards Latin American things.

Well, maybe you mean first generation, bit huge chunks of Northeast whites have Irish or Italian ancestry.

There are ethnic enclaves all over. Historical and current immigration. Of course, current European immigration to the US has dropped considerably from the historic highs. Chicago has a large Polish presence, as do many smaller towns around the US such as ones in NJ like Linden and Wallington. Germans in the midwest, Italians in the Northeast, etc.

Yes, I meant immigrants. Otherwise that would be a silly question because the whole US is filled with people of that ancestry.

There are not many Italian nationals in the Northeast besides some elderly people.
