Does anywhere besides NYC attract a large number of them? Not that NYC is filled with them exactly, but it's pretty common to meet long term residents from France, Germany, Spain, Italy, etc.

Eastern Europeans seem to be more spread out, since there is more incentive to migrate out of the former USSR countries.

Detroit - the auto industry attracts long term residents from Germany and Italy. Modcut: removed off-topic comment

Chrysler was bought out "saved" by the Italians in 2008 (Fiat).

The United States started off as English immigrants/settlers. The Northeast región has HUGE Irish, Italian, Portuguese communities. The Spanish, Fench, and Germans also historically settled the country at some point.

I have run into more than my fair share of Spanish, French and Italians in Miami/Miami Beach. One of my better friends here is Portuguese. Fewer Germans than I thought I might since it is or was a popular vacation destination for them. Quite common to see Eastern Europeans and Russians here, particularly in Sunny Isles and Aventura.

The Northeast most certainly does not have that, it's not 1910 anymore. There is a small community of Irish immigrants who mostly seem to work as bartenders.

Tourists or residents? New York City gets a ton of tourists from all over Europe, but most of the ones I meet (besides certain groups like Russians and Ukrainians) are tourists

Residents (and when I said Spanish, I did mean Spain—not Spanish speaking)...to my surprise before moving here, quite a few Turkish (Eurasia—not Central or Western Europe) residents here as well.

Separately, interesting article on Russian baby boom, in which Russian moms come to Miami to give birth here for a status symbol and so their babies gain US citizenship for possible future residency:

Interesting, I would have expected Brits to be the largest Western European group to be there

And I've heard of that Russian anchor baby thing

Year round sun might be too strong for their fair skin; that and/or the fairly large Spanish speaking population might be a hindrance.

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.
