Indians are perhaps the largest immigrant community in this part of PA, but I am not aware of real concentration in a neighborhood or apartment complex.

One of the surgeons in our township would only sell land to other Indian surgeons, so all three homes on his block have Indian owners, and all are large mansions in the million dollar plus range.

In Bethlehem the Indian restaurants and markets are:
Nawab
Brindhaavan
Indian Mart (610) 317-8627 | 3650 Nazareth Pike Bethlehem, PA 18020
Store with small cafe in the back

We have many Indian families in Southern Lehigh but they don't live in any particular place.

Census bureau data indicates that while there is diversity in Lehigh County, it is not anywhere on the level of most major East Coast cities. The population of Indians spans a fairly broad range of incomes, and are there simply aren't enough of them to have a predominantly Indian neighborhood.

The Latino population is more concentrated in the county at 45%|71% within 1|2 miles of PP&L Center or 77% in the City of Allentown.

349,497 Lehigh County
34,620 Foreign born
15,763 Born in Puerto Rico, U.S. Island areas, or born abroad to American parents
...
3,773 Indians
1,969 Chinese
1,512 Vietnamese
1,279 American Indian and Alaska Native
801 Korean
749 Filipino
223 Japanese
...
37,980 Puerto Rican
3,829 Mexican
859 Cuban
22,947 Other Latino

I think certain apartment complexes tend to have larger concentrations of Indian families. Unfortunately, I don't know which ones.

Often people who speak a common language try to live near each other. When I lived in DC my friend was Ethiopian, and she told me which apartments were known to have large percentages of Ethiopians.

But with an ethnic group that constitutes only 1% of the county population, most outsiders wouldn't know. The best I could do was list Indian restaurants so the OP can talk to people.

There are a 3 Indian grocery stores that I'm aware of in the area (Indian Bazaar I & II and Apna Punjab). Maybe ask the owners/ people there? I'm sure they will be able to point you in the right direction. As I said above, there are pockets of apartment complexes that tend to have more Indian people, but I don't know where those are.

In terms of houses (not apartments), I'd say the Indian community tends to be in the newer/ nicer houses in the suburban school districts (but don't think one has significantly more than others).
