Voorhees Township in NJ, Cherry Hill has some. Mercer County if its not too far up north, as South Asians like being closer to North Jersey and New York where there is a lot more presence. In PA, I know there is some presence around Bristol and Bensalem.

The Somerton part of Philly has many Indians, and parts of Castor Gardens have some living there as well.

You could also check out Upper Darby, PA, in the western suburbs of Philadelphia proper. It is located in Delware County.

Asian Indian, as in Indian from India; so there's no confusion with Native American/American Indian.

Majority of the Jersey Indians aren't ghetto. Even the ones behind the Dunkin Donut counters....they are often in transition from work visa/green card to citizen, and most have some wealthy family citizen relatives around...often uncle Patel the franchise owner. They working there only to move up societally. Some I knew worked at Wal-Mart full-time just to get the health insurance while spouses take much higher paying job but without the health insurance.

Mod cut - deleted post quoted here-

That crowd you are mentioning:
Dresses like Chris Brown, able to fly in atleast math to be able to get into Drexel or Rutgers New Brunswick in an engineering program in late teens, making 70-80k in late 20's and then chooses to live Jersey City (where there are more ppl like them), or around the DC metro area, isn't ghetto.

It's just that they choose to be not white during their 18-25 yr. old phase, but end up normalizing and getting on facebook like everyone else in their late 20s.

Being white I mean, being into fishing, camping, golfing, having pets in the house, nhl over nba, etc.

Anyways, That's just a one segment of the 18-25 South Asian crowd. Far more, get into a top 50 school, or study and get into a MS program (med school) right after undergrad, and they usually don't front a somewhat Chris Brown look (which is still far from looking real ghetto).

I'd say there are still far fewer true reject 18-25 in the south asian American population, that become druggies, and keep their ghetto look after 24. and even them most went to some college.
