Jewish Metropolitan Homelands

By Ira M. Sheskin

JCG Press, 1992

The article argues that three metropolitan areas in the United States are ethnic Jewish homelands: the New York metropolitan area, with the Lower East Side as its historical heart; South Florida, with Miami Beach as its historical heart; and southern California, with Boyle Heights as its historical heart. In each of the three cases, the historical heart is no longer the principal area of Jewish settlement in the metropolitan area.
