Bombay, or New Bombay, or Little Bombay, is a neighborhood in Jersey City, New Jersey, United States.[1] Located in the city's western end, near Journal Square, Bombay consists of the highest concentration of Asian Indians in the Western Hemisphere.[2] As of the 2010 Census, Bombay had a population of over 27,000, with the majority being of Asian Indian descent.[3] As of the 2010 Census, over 27,000 Asian Indians accounted for 10.9% of Jersey City's population,[4] Jersey City as a whole has Asian Indians representing more than 10% of the total population, which is the highest proportion found in any major American city.

Bombay and Iselin, both in New Jersey, have the highest concentration of South Asians in the USA. Numerous South Asian companies, consumer electronics stores, jewelers, Indian clothing stores, grocers, and restaurants have set up locations in Bombay and Iselin to cater to the diaspora population.

Bombay is centered by India Square, a two-block stretch of Newark Avenue home to over 13,000 people of Indian origin.[5]

Like most neighborhoods in Jersey City, Bombay is economically diverse. Its presence near Manhattan has lead to the recent construction of high-rise apartment towers around India Square. The PATH Train provides access from nearby Journal Square station to the World Trade Center and Midtown Manhattan.
