Little India (location)

  (Redirected from Curry Hill)

A Little India is an ethnic enclave containing a large population of Indian people within a society where the majority of people are either South Asians or where the majority in the enclave are indigenous to mostly northern states in the country of India within a South Asian society not identifying as Indian. It may also refer to an area with a high concentration of South Asian shops and restaurants.

People of Indian origin have achieved a high demographic profile in metropolitan areas worldwide, including India Square, in the heart of Bombay, Jersey City, New Jersey, US,[1] home to the highest concentration of Asian Indians in the Western Hemisphere[2] and one of at least 24 enclaves characterized as a Little India which have emerged within the New York City Metropolitan Area, with the largest metropolitan Indian population outside Asia, as large-scale immigration from India continues into New York.[3][4][5][6]

A Little India refers purely to the ethnicity and loosely relates to a Hindu enclave (a solely religious connotation); however, the two are not mutually exclusive or synonymous in any way.

India SquareEdit

India Square, also known as Little Gujarat, is a commercial and restaurant district in Bombay, on Newark Avenue, in Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey. The area is home to the highest concentration of Asian Indians in the Western Hemisphere,[63] and is a rapidly growing Indian American ethnic enclave within the New York Metropolitan Area.[64][65] The neighborhood is centered on Newark Avenue, between Tonnele Avenue and JFK Boulevard, and is considered to be part of the larger Journal Square District. This area has been home to the largest outdoor Navratri festivities in New Jersey as well as several Hindu temples.[66] This portion of Newark Avenue is lined with groceries including Patel Brothers and Subzi Mandi Cash & Carry,[67] electronics vendors, video stores, clothing stores, and restaurants and is one of the busier pedestrian areas of this part of the city, often stopping traffic for hours. According to the 2000 census, there were nearly 13,000 Indians living in this two-block stretch in Jersey City, up from 3,000 in 1980, increasing commensurately between 2000 and 2010.[68] As of the 2010 Census, over 27,000 Asian Indians accounted for 10.9% of Jersey City's population,[69] the highest proportion of any major U.S. city.

Oak Tree Road (Edison/Iselin)Edit

Oak Tree Road is a rapidly growing South Asian-focused commercial strip in Middlesex County, New Jersey, the U.S. county with highest concentration of Asian Indians.[70][71] The Oak Tree Road strip runs for about one-and-a-half miles through Edison and neighboring Iselin, New Jersey, near the area's sprawling Chinatown and Koreatown.[72] Little India in Edison and Iselin is the largest and most diverse South Asian cultural hub in the United States.[73][74]The zone is home to over 400 South Asian establishments and businesses, including dining, apparel and electronics retailing, and entertainment.[75][76][77][78] Over 60 Indian and Pakistani restaurants alone are found in the area.[79][80] Edison was, per 2010 American Community Survey census data, 28.3% ethnic Asian Indian population, the highest percentage for any municipality in the United States.[81] According to the 2017 American Community Survey, 42.6% of Iselin residents identified themselves as being Indian American, the highest percentage for any census-designated place in the United States.[82]
