Muslims in Metro New York (Part 2) – Specific Muslim Group Estimates

On my last blog, I looked at different estimates of Muslims in the United States, and more specifically, the New York metropolitan area. My estimate for Muslims in Metro New York is one million, which is larger than the population of cities such as Baltimore, Washington D.C, and Boston! My estimates are based on a mix of community estimates from leaders within these communities, census information, and other research that has been done on these groups. Over the next few blogs I will give more description for these estimates and will provide some maps on where some of these peoples live.
