From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of ethnic enclaves in North American cities. An ethnic enclave in this context denotes an area primarily populated by a population with similar ethnic or racial background. It does not include LGBT communities. This list also includes historic examples which may no longer be an ethnic enclave. European enclaves are somewhat more common in the North and East; Asian enclaves are somewhat more common in the West. African and Black enclaves are spread throughout, concentrated in southeast and northern cities.
