New York also has a large Arab population, especially in Brooklyn. Every ethnicity in the world is represented there, or so it seems.

Los Angeles has the largest Persian population outside of Iran (especially on the West Side), and a large Arab population. Orange County, CA has the 2nd largest Muslim population of any US county next to Wayne County, MI. Plenty of Arabs, some Persians. (Although South Asians, not Middle Easterners, are the largest Muslim group in the US, and the Arab-American population is majority Christian. The Persian-American population has a disproportionate amount of Christians and Jews in it far beyond their numbers in Iran itself ; Iran is 98% Muslim but the Persian-American population is only about 60% Muslim.)

The Bay Area has some Arabs and Israelis.

If one would consider Armenians to be Middle Eastern, they're all over California and especially common in Los Angeles (concentrated in Glendale, the San Fernando Valley, and Hollywood, but present in virtually every neighborhood outside of South Central L.A. and East L.A.) There are some in NY and NJ as well as other cities.

Malmö (Sweden) beats them all.
At least 50% of the city is islamic, but I have no real facts on that just personal experience since I grew up there.
And there are certain areas where the muslim population goes beyond 90%.

Other cities in Scania like Landskrona or Kristianstad probably has an even higher number, but they're too small
to be counted I think.

The Edgware Road,which starts from Oxford Street as you rightly mention by Marble Arch as far as Paddington is about as Middle Eastern as you can find anywhere. The Arab world recreated slap bang in the middle of London.
Can recall Farsi (Iranian) graffiti covering the walls of what was then the long closed Whitleys store,located further up in Queensway(Bayswater)in the eighties.

Malmö has never been over 50 %.
You shouldn't blame the whole city for a couple of crappy neighbourhoods.

Seeing as Middle Easterners can be of any religion Södertälje, near Stockholm, Sweden is reportedly 35% Assyrian Christian and quite the biggest home for Iraqi Christians fleeing that country.

São Paolo, Brazil looks to have a fair amount of Arabs, particularly Lebanese. In fact their mayor is of Lebanese descent.

As mentioned the Los Angeles and Detroit areas also look to have high amounts of Middle Easterners. (West Asian I think means the same thing)

Default Not necessarily Middle Eastern but often assumed to be...

There is a bit of confusion, self included, in my neck of the woods over who is Middle Eastern. A common misconception is that all Armenians have an Arabic / Persian background in their recent ancestry. This is clearly not the case, though maybe going back far enough there is some absolute connection. The common Armenian migration (both Soviet Armenian / Hystance and otherwise)...from originating country...e.g. Armenia / Canada / Lebanon etc. to Hollywood, California to Glendale, California. Glendale has the largest Armenian population outside Armenia. And there is a distinct class difference. You have the Soviet Armenians (Stances / Armos) and the Persian or non-Soviet Armenians. One is perceived to be a lower class than the other.
